It’s awful to say, but anyone still ‘missing’ is dead – that makes nearly 200 dead in this incident. Yikes! I feel bad because when I first heard about it I thought it was just passing motorists or something on a isolated highway… when I realized it was a whole section of a small town – ugh. Hope the village recovers.

I don’t know how to console the tearful souls of those who have lost their near and dear one. It is really a great lost.

the location in which these people live was pure insane. if you look at the before and after pictures, this was a know slide area.

That is like building a home on the fault line and pretending that you live in a safe home

I’ve lived within 20 miles of that slide for decades. People here worry about floods, they don’t think about whole hills coming down on them. Thanks for your sympathy.

I am so happy that the proper priorities have been set. It is far more important to place blame on county officials and belittle people who chose to live in that area than to actually recover bodies and confirm the victims. We need someone to blame and people to put down to make us feel good about ourselves.
