Emergency crews were scouring Sunday for 18 people still unaccounted for in the wake of a mudslide officials said killed four people and injured eight others in Washington state as fears were raised of more disastrous flooding. Snohomish County Fire Chief Travis Hots during a news conference Sunday said the number of missing people in the square mile mudslide that washed over Snohomish County would be fluid. Sots said "We suspect that there are people out there but it’s extremely dangerous to get responders out on that mud-flow. Thermal imaging cameras are generally effective on a surface area, if someone’s buried that won’t be effective."
