Red Cross volunteers from around the country, including Hawaii, are helping the families who have been impacted by the mudslide in Washington state. Ron Matayoshi is a professor of social work at the University of Hawaii. He is in the Oso area providing health counseling. Matayoshi told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that the victims are starting to talk about recovery, like where they're going to live and managing their families. He also says the volunteers are helping with the emotional needs. Officials in Washington state confirm that 29 people died in that massive mudslide northeast of Seattle. Search teams are now focused on finding the 20 people still listed as missing.
