LOS ANGELES, March 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The number of victims after a landslide that occurred in Washington state reached 8 people, a police representative reported on Sunday.
He said that over 10 people were reported missing. Rescue operation is underway at the site of the incident. Rescuers use helicopters to search for the victims. Meanwhile, the hazard of another landslide persists.

The state’s authorities recommended residents of the area of Stillaguamish River to leave their homes.
