Mudslide in Washington: More survivors doubtful

Friends and relatives continue to wait for news of their loved ones as the search resumed for victims of the mudslide that hit north of Seattle on Saturday, March 22. Rescuers were unable to work for two days because of the dangerous mud. Geologists in helicopters declared some areas safe to search for survivors. Over 100 people are still missing. --Thea Breite (16 photos total)
