Homeland Security, FEMA chiefs visit mudslide

EVERETT — Leaders of two federal agencies responding to the Oso mudslide visited the debris field on Sunday.
Federal Emergency Management Agency administrator Craig Fugate and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson joined Gov. Jay Inslee, U.S. senators Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell and Rep. Suzan DelBene in touring clean-up and recovery efforts at the mudslide site.
Johnson urged anyone affected by the slide to apply for FEMA aid.
Last Wednesday, President Obama declared a major disaster to help state, tribal, and local recovery efforts.
