“I get a sense we’re going to have some hard news here," Washington Gov. Jay Inslee said at a Sunday afternoon news conference. At least 12 victims were hospitalized Saturday - one of whom died - and seven remained hospitalized Sunday afternoon, including five in serious condition or worse, hospital officials told the Los Angeles Times.
Among the victims was a 6-month-old boy who was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after being the first victim flown from the disaster site. “Basically the people were swept away, pinned up against things, covered,” Harborview spokeswoman Elizabeth Hunter told The Times, adding that most of the mudslide wounds were “crushing injuries.”

Searchers looking for victims of Saturday's massive mudslide in eastern Snohomish County reported hearing voices possibly from children coming late Saturday from an area hit by the slide. Shari Ireton, spokeswoman for the Snohomish County sheriff's office said it is unclear if the missing people are trapped or have simply not reported their whereabouts. The sheriff's office has asked people affected by the slide to report to the Red Cross so an accurate count can be made of the missing. The three deaths were confirmed by the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office. Eight people have been rescued and were being treated at area hospitals. At least six houses were destroyed, the sheriff's office said in a statement.

Oh PLEASE, please do this story justice and create a much more informed thread, I truly mean that, I just quickly put this out there through shock and disappointment that I could not find more on it here, not to mention a little fear too. Where are our members who understand these things and that can possibly put 2x2 together with the rest of the geological movements in that area?
I am more than concerned. Thank you for coming back to make one, it is mystifying to me to not have this discussed and our members checking in with eye witness accounts.
