ARLINGTON -- Rescuers say more than a dozen are missing after a massive mudslide demolished two neighborhoods along the north fork of the Stillaguamish River.
Eight people were killed when a rain-soaked hillside above state Highway 530 near Oso gave way Saturday morning. Travis Hots, chief of Snohomish County Fire districts 21 and 22, said a square-mile of mud and debris slid across the road, blocked the river and demolished or damaged up to 30 homes.
Seattle Times photographer Marcus Yam captured this aerial image of the landslide on Saturday, March 22, 2014.
