YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) -- A second rock slide in as many days is being reported in Yosemite National Park in California.

Witnesses tell The Associated Press that trees were knocked down and some tent and wooden cabins were hit. One witness also said some people appeared to be injured. Officials have not confirmed injuries.

A park spokesman tells the television station KCRA that the slide occurred shortly after 7 a.m. Wednesday. Ranger Erik Skindrud said officials have gone to the area to evaluate any potential damage.

There was another rock slide in the same area near Curry Village on Tuesday afternoon. No one was injured.
