    14 dead; 176 reports of people missing in mile-wide mudslide

    Rescuers Monday found six more bodies in a milewide swath of mud and debris that plunged from a Snohomish County hillside, as reports of those still missing jumped to 176.
    So far, 14 people have been confirmed dead after the massive mudslide came down from above the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, crossed over it, plowed through homes and onto Highway 530 about 11 a.m. Saturday.
    Search conditions are dismal. Crews have at times been kept from the area out of fear more of the cliff above might crumble. And when they can look, in areas its like quicksand. Sometimes it takes five minutes to walk 40 or 50 feet and get our equipment over these berms, said Travis Hots, chief of Snohomish County Fire Districts 21 and 22.

    Great image and map of the area impacted here...

    Mind boggling the lack of media coverage on this.

    Jesus. A 176. I can't even imagine how much pain some people must be going through.

    So let me see if I understand this. There is an earthquake in SF that kills 18 people and 176 people are missing. And that wouldn't be all over the national news?

    We lose sight sometimes how deadly the history of weather is. This planet is a dangerous place to live.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    How fast does this mud move when it's sliding?

    There is plenty of media coverage of this.

    What I find mind-boggling is that anyone would live at the foot of an obviously dangerous slide area.

    The local government has some responsibility for what happened, they shouldn't have let people build homes there.
