I'm not really into blaming the victims at this point. In fact, I think victim-bashing is pretty damned tacky right now.
There are almost 200 people unaccounted for, and likely dead. The mud is anywhere from 15 feet to 40 feet deep (depending on which news source you're listening to), it covers a solid square mile of area, hampering ingress for rescuers and egress for anyone still alive. It is a damned tragedy of catastrophic proportions for those involved, and until and unless solid evidence that the state government knew the area was a hazard zone for building and was knowingly negligent in issuing building permits, I'm not ready to blame anybody or anything beyond mother earth and mother nature.
