White House Declares Federal Disaster in the State of Washington

The Oval Office Occupant (30) has declared a major disaster in the State of Washington  in the area affected by flooding and mudslides beginning on March 22, 2014, and continuing.

The worst affected by the disaster are individuals in Snohomish County, including the Sauk-Suiattle, Stillaguamish, and Tulalip Tribes.

FEMA said additional designations may be made at a later date if requested by the state and warranted by the results of further damage assessments.

Death Toll

The death from mudslide in Oso that wiped out a community om March 22, has risen to at least 30, with 13 people still missing.

Massive walls of mud, rock and debris buried the community destroying dozens of homes after a rain-soaked hillside collapsed above the north fork of Stillaguamish River.
