List Stands at 90 Confirmed Missing, 25 Dead in Mudslide
A spokesman for authorities dealing with Washington state’s deadly mudslide says search crews found an additional body late Wednesday, bringing the death toll to 25 victims.
That word comes from landslide incident spokesman Brian McMahan. Authorities say while they have discovered 25 bodies, not all have been recovered.
Snohomish County Emergency Management Director John Pennington said earlier Wednesday that 90 people have been confirmed as missing. Authorities are also looking into a list of 35 people who may or may not have been in the area at the time of last Saturday’s slide about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.
