US Mudslide Kills 3, with 10 Missing

A massive landslide in the western U.S. state of Washington has killed three people and left 10 others unaccounted for.

Authorities say a wall of mud, trees and rocks cascaded down a mountainside in a rural area north of the major city of Seattle on Saturday, demolishing six houses in its path. Eight people were injured.

Rescue workers heard voices crying for help and searched through the night into Sunday for survivors.

One motorist described seeing the mudslide.



"I was the third car behind a truck with a boat. I saw the darkness washing everything off the road. I'm not sure that truck made it through."



Officials blamed the mudslide on groundwater saturation after recent heavy rainfalls.
