"President Obama To Visit Site of Deadly Washington State Landslide"

"SEATTLE —  One month after the Washington state landslide that killed at least 34, President Obama is planning to survey the destruction firsthand.

Gov. Jay Inslee announced Tuesday that Obama will travel on April 22 to the site of the mammoth slide that closed State Route 530 and destroyed dozens of homes, prompting a major disaster declaration from the White House.

The president is scheduled to meet with families of the dead and missing, first responders and recovery workers, Inslee said."
