LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Authorities have a total of 108 names of people reported missing or unaccounted for after a landslide in the northwestern US state of Washington, a local emergency official said Monday.

The confirmed death toll remains at eight after the massive landslide slammed "like a freight train" into a mountainside community, said Snohomish County emergency management chief John Pennington.
