SEATTLE - Washington state Gov. Jay Inslee took another tour of the site of the massive Oso landslide by helicopter, saying the scene is considerably different than last week.
Inslee said Sunday during a news conference at the airport in Arlington that the operation at the debris site is "very, very extensive," noting front-end loaders and other heavy equipment as well as hundreds of workers searching and building a corridor to link both sides.
He said planning is just beginning for long-term housing needs and for re-establishing State Route 530 in the area between Darrington and Oso.
Inslee says no specific plans exist yet, but that they will include extensive public comment, especially regarding the 530 corridor, adding that it will be done in a way that is sensitive to families who have lost loved ones in the slide.
