More than 100 missing-persons reports have been filed in Washington state in the aftermath of a mudslide in which 14 deaths have been confirmed.

The landslide was triggered after rain-soaked embankments near Oso, Washington, about 55 miles (90 km) northeast of Seattle, gave way on Saturday morning, washing away at least six homes.

In this picture, men search through the wreckage of a home belonging to the Kuntz family. The entire family was at a baseball game on Saturday morning when the mudslide swept through the area. The family returned Sunday.
