A mudslide knocked a three-story house off its foundation and sent it sliding into Puget Sound on Sunday, killing two parents and their two preschoolers. The swirling mud slammed into the back of the wood-frame house, sending the top floor on a 50-foot slide down into the water. Then the second floor collapsed onto the first floor, said Fire Chief Kirk Stickels. Searchers, aided by dogs, cameras and sonar, found the bodies in the basement, said fire department spokesman Ken Guy.

Torrential rains and melting snow engorged hundreds of streams in the Cascade Mountains, washing out a bridge and sending the Snoqualmie River over its banks amid warnings of possible major flooding. Tons of rock crashed down in the early morning on the North Cascades Highway, 5 miles east of Newhalem, closing the road to traffic. A wall of water washed out the bridge over Glacier Creek on the Mt. Baker Highway.
