WASHINGTON LANDSLIDE

On Saturday 22nd of March, 2014, a huge landslide shocked the people in a small, rural area of Washington. This landslide destroyed many houses and completely covered a road just north of Oso, a town near Seattle. Also, about fourteen people were killed, many more were injured, and there are about 90 people unaccounted for. Many people were killed immediately, and one died in hospital.

  The mudslide was at least 41m wide and 54m deep, and happened in only a few seconds. Authorities think it caused by the heavy rain they have been receiving recently. Unfortunately, more heavy rain has been predicted, and many people have been advised to move to higher ground.
