The Washington State mudslide that killed 14, up from eight initially reported, was not the only deadly slide today. This week, the bodies of a father and son were discovered buried in an avalanche. They inadvertently triggered the avalanche while tobogganing (sledding) in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. A further two people were killed in an avalanche on a Sochi ski slope that was recently a venue for the Olympic Games.
In other news, one man is dead after flooding in Sydney, Australia.
