Washington Mudslide Kills 29

 

 

The death toll in the Washington mudslide has risen to 29, even as Prez Barack Obama notified it as a federal disaster to help the Oso town recover from it. The declaration makes government funds available for the people affected by the collpase of a 1.5-km long mountain above the town, located near Seattle. The landslide came after record-breaking rains in Washington.

The rescue staff are still examining the massive debris spread over 2.5 sq. km. The mudslide has also dammed a river and covered a highway with more than 7 mtr. of mud. Though a day of dry weather aided rescuers in navigating through the chaos but possible heavy rains could again hamper the efforts.
