The death toll from Washington state's mudslide now stands at 14, as searchers recovered six more bodies Monday.
Since the mudslide Saturday in Snohomish County, 176 missing-person reports have been filed. Local authorities don't expect that number to translate into casualties, but they also say search efforts can only do so much now. (Via The Seattle Times / Washington State Patrol)
This is all playing out about 55 miles northeast of Seattle in the small rural town of Oso. The population was just 180 in the last census. This mudslide covers an area roughly one square mile in size.
Also Monday, President Obama declared a formal state of emergency in Washington state, meaning FEMA equipment and resources will aid local rescue and recovery efforts.
The fact that parts of the mudslide are still moving has kept search teams away of certain areas. The mud runs as much as 20 feet deep in some places.
