Washington landslide death toll doubles to 8

ARLINGTON, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say the death toll from a massive landslide in rural Washington state has doubled to eight.

Snohomish County sheriff's Lt. Rob Palmer said four more bodies were discovered late Sunday. Earlier in the day, authorities said one body had been found on the debris field. Three people were already confirmed dead on Saturday.

The 1-square-mile mudslide that struck Saturday morning also critically injured several people and destroyed about 30 homes.

At least 18 people remained missing, though authorities warned that number was "fluid."
