DARRINGTON, Wash. (AP) — Crews searching for victims in the tangled debris field from the Washington mudslide halted their work for a moment of silence to honor those lost.

Gov. Jay Inslee had asked people across Washington to pause at 10:37 a.m. Saturday. The huge slide that destroyed a neighborhood in Oso north of Seattle struck at that time on March 22.

Authorities say they’ve found at least 25 bodies and scores remain missing.

The slide that struck 55 miles northeast of Seattle is one of the deadliest landslides ever in the United States.
