oso washington

My school is less than an hour away from Oso. It is devastating. The number of deaths and missing people is overwhelming. If you can, please help. This is the worst natural disaster ever recorded in Washington State history. Even worse than Mt. St. Helens. My school is raising money for the people of Oso. Every penny counts. Guys, Oso is a small town. That’s a lot of people for a small town.

Oso Washington experienced a horrible tragedy on Saturday March 22, 2014 as a giant mudslide covered a mile of highway 530. The number of confirmed deaths is now up to eight and the reports of those missing is over 100 as this slide covered a number of homes in this rural community. This months record rains is what is thought to be the main reason for this unforeseen event. My thoughts are with those still searching for their loved ones and my heart breaks for their loss as this is a area of Washington that I visit often and the people who live there have always been so kind to me and my family. If anyone wants to donate any money for the relief efforts for those involved they cant text the RedCross to 90999 and a $10.00 donation will be charged to your cell phone bill.
