Oso mudslide emergency information

Snohomish County has established a single phone number for reports: 425-388-5088.

John Pennington with the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management asked that even if someone has already made a missing persons report, but didn't make that report to Snohomish County, they call (425) 388-5088, to report that person missing again.

Officials also asked that those who escaped the mudslide area or those who had homes in the area, also call the number (425) 388-5088, so they may also be accounted for.

Residents impacted by the mudslide near Oso can also register on the Red Cross website safeandwell.org to list themselves as "safe and well" or to search for other people who are already registered.

You can donate to the Red Cross, any amount is helpful. Call 1-800-RedCross or donate online. You can also text the words RedCross to 90999 and $10 will be charged to your cell phone bill.

Shelters are open at Post Middle School in Arlington and at the Community Center in Darrington.

Snohomish County says a group of volunteers is helping people affected by the slide move their livestock and pets. The volunteers are located throughout Camano Island, Stanwood, Everett, Arlington and other cities.
