Crews to Search for Three Men Believed Killed After Landslide Hits Alaska Town

Crews plan to search through a debris area on Wednesday for three men believed killed when a landslide described as a sea of logs and mud swept through part of an Alaska coastal town.
A Sitka fire official said late on Tuesday night that the men were presumed dead and the search will be a “body recovery effort”.
The avalanche occurred on Tuesday morning but a search was hampered by unstable terrain.
Sitka fire department spokeswoman Sara Peterson told the Associated Press on Tuesday night that operations were suspended until a geologist assesses the stability of the slide area Wednesday morning.
