Authorities say there are 102 names on the list of people who've been reported missing or unaccounted for in the weekend mudslide in Washington state.

Snohomish County emergency management director John Pennington says that doesn't mean there are 102 injuries or fatalities. But he says it's the consolidated list of reported missing from various sources that authorities are working from.

Pennington says the slide occurred on a Saturday morning, when more people were likely to be home.

At least 14 people were killed in the 1-square-mile slide that hit in a rural area about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.

Several people also were critically injured, and about 30 homes were destroyed.
