  • Snohomish County Executive John Lovick wipes his eyes as he listens during a news conference about a deadly mudslide that happened two days earlier, Monday, March 24, 2014, in Arlington, Wash. The search for survivors of the deadly mudslide grew Monday to include 108 names of people who were reported missing or were unaccounted for, but authorities cautioned the figure would likely decline dramatically. The size of the list raised concerns the death toll would rise far above the eight people who have been confirmed dead after the 1-square-mile (2.6-square-kilometer) slide Saturday swept through part of a former fishing village about 55 miles (80 miles) northeast of Seattle. Several people also were critically injured. About 30 homes were destroyed, and the debris blocked a 1-mile (1.6 kilometer) stretch of state highway.   (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
