Post up any recent pics if you have been there lately.
There has been lots of damage to the backcountry roads. For example:

"Saline Valley Road from Big Pine to Death Valley was closed Tuesday morning after flood waters on Monday cut a 40-foot deep by 50-foot wide hole in the roadway, according to Sheriff Bill Lutze. The road will remain closed indefinitely."
