Wednesday night an emergency commander in Darrington, Washington told a packed town meeting the number of confirmed dead in the Oso landslide is now 25. And dozens are still missing.
The numbers change as bodies are recovered. It’s grim and exhausting work.
Bob DeYoung came to a prayer vigil in Darrington wearing thick suspenders that held up jeans covered in mud.
DeYoung: “Sticks to everything.”
You could see he had been working hard. He had been out all day.
