Very sad story. The flooding is another scary thing to watch as it will displace many people and families.

This is sad, I feel bad for the families of the victims and the missing. Hopefully they can get everyone out soon and alive.

A lot of riders around here use Highway 530 to get back to the forest service roads between Arlington and Darrington, hopefully none of them were up there when this happened.

Here's a good recap on it from someone we all follow at work: http://blogs.agu.org/landslideblog/

Currently 2 posts about it. Makes me gag a little since we had 2 projects up at Ross and Diablo Dams... Used to drive through there every other weekend for a couple years.

That would be "108 reports" of people missing, not "108 people missing."

Mr Cob lives on the South fork of the Stilly.
I think Chris also lives on the South fork.

How about n16ht5? I noticed he lives in or near Arlington.

BTW just an FYI. I Rode around Lake Cavanaugh after work today and Deer
Creek Rd (the one that goes over to Hwy 530) had a ROAD CLOSED sign blocking it.
I believe this comes out west of the slide area so I'm not sure if the closure is related to what happened.

Yeah, that's who I meant. Guns got it.

Any word from those guys?
