Sorry, but unfortunately Pizza Hut’s ‘Italian Taco’ isn’t real
LOS ANGELES - Following the news from Taco Bell that the Mexican Pizza is officially back on the menu for good, many have been left to speculate whether or not it actually is a pizza. This speculation has apparently offended the popular fast-food chain Pizza Hut as they recently took to social media to throw shade at Taco Bell. Thinking that Taco Bell was intending to out pizza the hut with the latest success of the Mexican Pizza, Pizza Hut posted a photo of someone folding a slice of pizza in the shape of a taco and calling it an "Italian Taco."The post sent pizza and taco fans into a frenzy wondering if they would have the chance to get their hands on such a creation but Pizza Hut later confirmed to multiple outlets that the whole thing was just a slice of pizza folded like a taco. Kicking Taco Bell while they were down, Pizza Hut made a jest out of the news that when Taco Bell originally brought back the Mexican Pizza earlier this year, it sold out within weeks. Pizza Hut noted that their Italian Taco was something that would never sell out. Taco Bell's Mexican pizza will return as a permanent menu item this month after the food chain severely underestimated demand in a temporary release earlier this year.The fast food chain brought back the Mexican pizza as a limited-time menu item in May, but did not purchase nearly enough supply to meet demand.

Desert flooding damages Interstate 10 between Los Angeles and Phoenix
DESERT CENTER, Calif. - The main highway from Los Angeles to Phoenix was damaged by a flash flood that washed out part of the road through the Southern California desert in the latest bout of punishing monsoonal thunderstorms that have hit the region this month.The latest round of flooding started Wednesday evening, damaging the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 near the small community of Desert Center, about 165 miles (265 kilometers) east of Los Angeles.Traffic in both directions was halted initially, but westbound lanes for motorists heading from Arizona to California reopened later."We have a project happening in that area on the I-10, so it’s the I-10 tune up, so the kind of silver lining to this is that we had detour lanes, and those were actually the ones that we lost to the flood and the water, so the good thing is that they were able to use the main line right now for that one lane eastbound that is allowing traffic from LA to Arizona," said said Eric Dionne with Caltrans.All eastbound traffic was diverted until the California Department of Transportation managed to reopen one lane Thursday morning.Officials recommended that people heading from Southern California use Interstates 8 or 40, which are major detours."Everyone, just take [your] time," said trucker Lorne Focht. "Don't cut people off, and be patient.
