Snohomish County released a series of 911 calls from Saturday's deadly landslide on State Route 530 near Oso. Here are a few of the excerpts:

“There is a house on 530 and a big slide and it is covering the road at the bottom of Skaglund Hill… There has been a huge landslide and it’s pushed the house all the way across the road… The house is not occupied. The people have moved out… I can’t believe this. Oh, my God.”

“There’s a mudslide and everything’s gone. The houses are gone… We watched hundreds of trees come falling… There are people yelling for help… There are so many people yelling for help… It stopped 100 feet from my house.”

“My neighbor’s house and their neighbor’s house has been completely taken out and it’s collapsed on several of them and they’re trapped… I can hear them tapping underneath and yelling at us. There are several of them in a group under debris and the roof of the house.”
