The park will also be searched from the air to make sure there are no more stranded vehicles in remote areas, it said. "At this time there have been no reports of visitors stranded on the park roads and no reports of injuries."

The national park administration had previously announced that around 500 visitors and 500 employees could no longer leave the park after the unusually heavy rains on Friday. Accordingly, dozens of cars stuck in the mud. All roads in and out of Death Valley were blocked.

In the Furnace Creek area, 3.7 centimeters of rain fell on Friday - almost the previous daily record. The average annual rainfall in Death Valley is two inches.
