Weary searchers resume their dangerous work Wednesday in Oso, Wash., where it’s thought at least 24 people — and possibly many more — died when a massive mudslide buried the small community north of Seattle on Saturday.
Headlines and news outlets’ updates help tell the story as the day begins:

— “The number of people believed to be missing in the mudslide remains ‘fluid,’ according to officials. They have been working off a list with nearly 200 reports of people who are unaccounted for, but search operation crews said they are sure many of those names are duplicates.” (Seattle’s KUOW)
— “The debris area covers an entire square mile and recent rain is making the task even more difficult.” (KUOW’s Sara Lerner on the NPR Newscast)
