ROOSEVELT, Utah (AP) -- Ashley National Forest officials are urging drivers to be cautious because of road damage caused by heavy rains.

Forest officials say drivers should use the Elk Horn Loop Road only if absolutely necessary until the weather clears up and they can assess the damage.

Officials also say other roads are slick and may be impassable because of washouts in the forest, which covers 1.3 million acres in northeast Utah and southwest Wyoming.
