A Washington mayor has said her community is having a "very tragic time" dealing with the aftermath of a huge landslide.

Fourteen bodies have been recovered in the landslide and up to 176 people remain unaccounted for.

Mayor Barbara Tolbert's "tight-knit" town Arlington is 15 miles from the worst-hit area, Oso.

She told BBC Radio 5 live's Up All Night: "You can't walk through the streets of Arlington without meeting up with someone who is missing someone."
