More Victims Discovered

Search crews have discovered the bodies of 8 more people killed in Saturday's deadly mudslide in Washington.
(NBC News) A task force of rescue experts was due to arrive in Washington on Tuesday to bolster the increasingly desperate search for survivors after an immense mudslide.

Officials have battled dangerous quicksand-like conditions at the mile-square debris field near Oso, Wash., but have failed to find anyone alive since Saturday.

At least six more bodies were pulled from a jumble of mud, trees and destroyed homes on Monday - putting the official death toll at 14. 

There were 176 reports of people missing, but authorities were keen to stress that some of these could be false alarms or duplicates.
