OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee today asked Washington residents to join him in a moment of silence Saturday morning to honor victims of the Oso mudslide and their families.
Inslee called for it to be held at 10:37 a.m., which is when the devastating mudslide occurred March 22.
“I know that every Washingtonian holds in their heart the people of the Stillaguamish Valley and we all wish we could ease their pain,” Inslee said in a statement. “Tomorrow morning, we can all join together and silently send our thoughts and prayers to the families of Oso.”
At least 90 people are considered missing as a result of the slide. The official death count stands at 17, although bodies have been found in the debris and the number is expected to increase in coming days, officials said.
