The number of people missing from last week's Washington state mudslide has been revised down substantially from 90 to 30.

The official death toll has risen to 18, with several bodies yet to be formally identified.

Rescue workers halted operations briefly on Saturday to observe a moment's silence for those who died.

It has been over a week since the town of Oso, north of Seattle, was struck by a 177 foot wall of mud and debris.
