A mile-long mud, trees and rocks landslide has killed three people, critically injured an infant (six-month-old) and several others, and destroyed six houses in rural Snohomish County just 55 miles north of Seattle on Saturday, March 22, 2014.  Look at these apocalyptic pictures… It’s really a big mess!

The mud slide blocked the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, which prompted an evacuation notice because water was rising rapidly behind the debris.
