More victims found in Oso slide

The grim search continues for victims of the massive mudslide in Oso, Washington.  The bodies of five victims were located Sunday bringing the total to eight.  At least ten people are missing.

Most of the searching so far has been done from the air, because the mud has been too fluid.  It's now drying out which will allow more searching on the ground.

The slide blocked the Snohomish River and there are concerns the water backing up behind the slide could cause it to break and flood the valley.  Water is getting around the slide which is easing those concerns.
