Gar Creek still roars through the middle of the landslide that tore through Johnsons Landing.

Search and rescue continues to work at Johnsons Landing

Over night rain and poor weather that has continued into today has delayed searchs at Johnsons Landing.



Vancouver-based Heavy Urban Search and Rescue were unable to get an early start at Johnsons Landing this morning after heavy rain compromised the stability of the slide.

Geo-technicians assess the slide and at 10 a.m. officials said crews were preparing to deploy back into the site.

Valentine, Diana and Rachel Webber and Petra Frehse are still missing in the massive debris field.
