    People in rural Washington state will continue to search for survivors, more than a week after a massive mudslide killed at least 18 people and left 30 missing.
    Washington Governor Jay Inslee told CNN's "State of the Union with Candy Crowley, "We are hoping for a miracle. We are going to do everything we can to look for that miracle and care for these (affected) families."
    The number of people unaccounted for after the March 22 landslide dropped Saturday from 90 to 30.
    Jason Biermann, a program manager for the Snohomish County Department of Emergency Management, said at least 18 people have died. A 19th body was also found in the debris field, but was not identified and therefore wasn't counted in the death toll.
