At least three people have been killed following a landslide in rural Washington state that injured at least eight others and destroyed six houses.

The slide of dirt, trees, rocks and other debris – at least 135 feet (41 metres) wide and 180 feet deep – hit just before 11am on Saturday, authorities said.

The Snohomish county sheriff's office initially reported that two people had been killed. Authorities said on later Saturday that one of the people rescued died at a hospital.

Rescue crews searched into the night for survivors after hearing voices from the debris field pleading for help.

Snohomish County Fire District 21 Chief Travis Hots said at a news briefing that searchers weren't giving up on finding more people.

"We have people who are yelling for our help, and we are going to take extreme risks," Hots said.

It wasn't clear how many people might still be alive, he said.

The landslide completely blocked state route 530 about 55 miles (88km) north of Seattle. People in nearby communities were urged to flee to higher ground.

One eyewitness told the local Daily Herald that he was driving on the road and had to quickly brake to avoid the mudslide. "I just saw the darkness coming across the road. Everything was gone in three seconds," said Paulo Falcao.

The injured included a six-month-old boy who was in a critical condition at Harborview medical centre in Seattle.

Two other victims were in a critical condition – an 81-year-old man and a 58-year-old man – while a 37-year-old man was in serious condition.

In essence - if you live on a volcano - don't go crying to CNN when lava runs thru the garage and takes out your brand new SUV.

Humans - geeeeeez.

That is terrible.

It's probably equally terrible that not even 10 seconds looking at those pics my attention turned to wondering what if anything interesting, geologic or otherwise, might have been exposed on that new hillside.
