(CNN) Death Valley National Park announced its closure Friday due to substantial flooding within the park, according to a news release. "All roads into and out of the park are currently closed and will remain closed until park staff can assess the extensiveness of the situation," the National Park Service said Friday. There were approximately 500 visitors and 500 staff at the park Friday, according to the agency, and stranded visitors can leave if they wish. Abby Wines, public affairs officer for the National Park Service, told CNN Friday a number of visitors to Death Valley National Park have voluntarily left the park. Despite road closures, Wines says "no one is stopping" visitors if they find a way out of the park.
