Our Neighbors ( Mudslide )

The landslide covered about a square mile and was caused by groundwater saturation tied to heavy rain in the area over the past month. It affected the towns of Oso, a remote community of about 180, and Darrington, a town of about 1,350.

Please pray for the families of those missing or lost in the little community
just North of our town about 14 miles.














Heavy rain is predicted for the next 7 days.
Making the recovery more difficult.

    I saw this morning that they pulled a doggie named Buddy out of a house!!! Yea Buddy!! That was FABulous to see. Let's hope there are more amazin' stories to come. Paws crossed for everyone....
