After Mudslide, A Long Road To Normal

Monday, April 21, 2014

One month after the devastating landslide in Oso, Washington, residents are trying to resume everyday living. The landslide killed 41 people; four remain missing.

The mudslide also destroyed a highway between the towns of Oso and Darrington. Commutes that once took a few minutes now take hours.
