For the second day in a row, rockfalls have occurred on El Capitan, a popular rock formation located in Yosemite National Park in California.

The national park confirmed the fall on Twitter on Thursday, telling visitors that the Northside Drive exiting the Yosemite Valley is closed due to the fall crossing the road.

Climber Peter Zabrok shared a video through NBC from above the fall, which shows the dusty aftermath through the trees.

“Absolutely unbelievable. We are on the summit, we are all safe,” a voice can be heard saying on the video.

Climber Ryan Sheridan also posted a photo to Instagram, which shows the rockfall in the area directly below where he was climbing.

Broke loose again, we just topped out. Ground shaking, rockfall crossed road

“Broke loose again, we just topped out,” he wrote.

Sadly, the rockfall comes just after a series of seven hit the southeast face of El Capitan on Wednesday, killing one person and injuring another. It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries from the fall that occurred Thursday.

Sheridan tells the Associated Press that the rockfall on Thursday occurred in the same as the rockfalls on Wednesday.

However, according to the Yosemite Climbing Association, the fall on Thursday was “much larger” than the fall on Wednesday, Scott Budman with NBC News reports.

Preliminary estimates report that the multiple falls on Wednesday resulted in 16,000 cubic feet of rock to cascade down from approximately 650 feet above the base of El Capitan.

Rockfalls are not particularly unusual for Yosemite, and the park even has a rockfall chart that shows falls documented from 1857 to 2011.

“Rockfalls are a common occurrence in Yosemite Valley and the park records about 80 rockfalls per year; though many more rockfalls go unreported. The rockfall from El Capitan was similar in size and extent compared with other rockfalls throughout the park, though it is not typical that there were victims,” the park service wrote on its website in reference to the rockfalls on Wednesday.
