At least 14 people are confirmed dead, and 176 are missing after a major U.S. mudslide in northwestern Washington State. The scale of a massive mudslide’s devastation in a rural village north of Seattle has become apparent days after a wall of heavy mud heaved houses off their foundations, toppled trees and left a gaping cavity on what had been a tree-covered hillside. CCTV’s Chris Casquejo reports from Snohomish County on the rescue efforts.
