OSO, Wash. (AP) Authorities say the death toll from a massive landslide in Washington state has risen to 14.

Snohomish County sheriff's spokeswoman Shari Ireton said Monday search and rescue crews discovered an additional six bodies. Dozens of people remained unaccounted for.

The huge wall of mud and debris swept through a small community north of Seattle late Saturday morning.

About two dozen homes were destroyed, and several people were critically injured.
