oso mudslide, oso landslide

A house, marked with an X to signal it has been searched for victims, is seen destroyed in the mud on Highway 530 next to mile marker 37 on Sunday, March 23, 2014 the day after a giant landslide occurred near Oso, Washington. As of April 15, the death toll stands at 37, with seven still missing. Officials say it could take several more months to clear the square mile-sized site, which swallowed up more than 30 homes and cut off direct access to the small town of Darrington.
