6. NINETY STILL MISSING IN USA MUDSLIDE
The death toll from the Washington state mudslide, which hit Oso, a small town 55 miles north of Seattle, last weekend, has climbed to 24, with 90 people still missing. At one time it was feared as many as 176 were unaccounted for. Part of a cliff collapsed, burying the town in a 177-foot wall of mud and other debris.
