"We will be here as long as it takes"-Obama in Washington State

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama said, "We will be here as long as it takes," after meeting with families and victims of deadly mudslide in Washington State. A rain-soaked hillside collapsed above the north fork of the Stillaguamish River on March 22, unleashing a torrent of mud that swallowed up a stretch of a state highway and some three dozen homes on the outskirts of the tiny community of Oso. The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office said on Monday that 41 victims have been recovered from the slide that buried a river valley neighborhood in the Cascade mountain foothills last month. The president signed an emergency declaration ordering U.S. government assistance to supplement state and local relief efforts in the aftermath of the mudslide and flooding. Obama is due to visit Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and Philippines over the next eight days.
