"We've lost some very close friends," Nancy said of the mudslide. About 100 have been sold today, with part of the proceeds going towards relief efforts. There have been no major updates so far today 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.
