- "Searchers had warned they were likely to find more bodies in the debris field, which covered a neighborhood of 49 structures..."
Washington state officials say searchers found 10 more bodies in the debris of a massive landslide, raising the number of people who died in the disaster to 24.
And there are 176 people unaccounted for.
Los Angeles Times reported on the 911 calls earlier today:
"There’s so many people yelling for help," one woman told a dispatcher, her voice constricting with emotion as she stared out at the wreckage...
[Another caller was] slightly distracted by the haunting scene in front of him: "My neighbor's house, and their neighbor's house, have been completely taken out. It's collapsed on several of them and they're trapped."
"You know that they're inside the home, still?" the dispatcher said.
"Yes, I'm standing at the location right now, and I can - and I can hear them tapping underneath and yelling at us," the caller said.
