Workers help clear and sort the remains of houses at the west site of the mudslide on Highway 530 near mile marker 37 on Friday, March 28, 2014. There were no major updates this morning to report, according to Snohomish District 21/22 Fire Chief Travis Hots, leaving the official count at 17 dead with 9 bodies yet to be recovered and 90 missing. Up to a half inch of rain is expected in the area Friday, which could hinder rescue and recovery efforts. "We've got a hard day ahead of us," Hots said. Cash donations are the best way to help at this point, according to Hots, who says they have enough volunteers.
