Probable death toll rises to 24 in Washington state mudslide

Published: 03.26.14, 07:45 / Israel News

ARLINGTON - The likely death toll from a devastating weekend landslide in Washington state rose to 24 on Tuesday after rescue workers recovered two bodies and believed they had located eight more, the local fire chief said.

 

As many as 176 people remained listed as missing three days after a rain-soaked hillside collapsed on Saturday, tumbling over a river, across a state road and into a rural residential area where it buried dozens of homes near the town of Oso.

 

The discovery of additional bodies came as crews searched in drizzling rain for survivors in the massive pile of heavy muck and debris. (Reuters)
