The A69 Eastbound is closed due to a collision between the B6531 and the A6079. There is a diversion in place via the B6531 into Hexham.
A section of the Newcastle to Carlisle rail line will be closed for weeks after a major landslide, brought on by the heavy rains.
The slip carried earth, rocks, shale and trees onto the line, east of Corbridge. The problem has grown over the course of the day, as water continues to pour down from land above.
The route is shut between Hexham and Prudhoe. Shuttle buses are in operation between the two stations.
Engineers face the task of clearing the area before rebuilding the embankment. Network Rail estimates its teams will have to remove 50,000 tonnes of material from the site.
