18 People missing


Authorities say 18 people are unaccounted for after a massive mudslide in Washington state killed at least three people and forced evacuations because of fears of flooding.

And with the river backing up behind the mudslide dam, this could be a disaster within a disaster withy flooding up river and a very likely  possible flash flood down river when that mud dam gives.

Even with this being a local story and it happen 24 hours ago, we just learned about it this morning because our avoidance of news all day Saturday.   

This mudslide is catastrophic. The neighborhood containing over 20 homes no longer exist. Its gone.  And the news is only going to get worse for those living behind the slide who live near the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River which is few hundred homes, and eventually down river to the city of Arlington which could be impacted in the same way as a dam bursting.

Here is a news conference given this morning.
