Washington state mudslide death toll rises to 33

Email

A rain-soaked hillside collapsed without warning on March 22 above the north fork of the Stillaguamish River, sending a torrent of mud over the river and across state Highway 530, engulfing some three dozen homes on the outskirts of the tiny community of Oso.
