Over 100 missing after deadly Washington mudslide
More than 100 people are missing following the deadly mudslide that hit Washington state over the weekend, according to officials.
Fourteen have been confirmed dead and 176 people are still unaccounted for after an enormous amount of mud and debris on Saturday wiped nearly a square mile in the town of Oso, which is about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.
Officials told NBC News that they expect the number missing to “decline dramatically” as search and rescue missions continue. The operation to find the missing involves aircrafts, search dogs, heavy machinery, and ground-probing equipment to move the mud.
There were 49 residential buildings in the area that were affected by the mudslide.
