April 18, 2014
EVERETT, Wash. - SR530 slide search teams will direct their efforts to a smaller section as early as Friday morning.
In the coming days, workers at the slide area will shift the focus of their search to the area south of the temporary berm. Experts say this area, which includes two of the total 21 search zones, offers the highest probability of search success.
Since the SR530 slide March 22, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office has identified 39 individual fatalities. Four more people remain on the list of missing.
