Illinois researchers to study Oso mudslide

The Associated Press

URBANA, Ill. — Five researchers from the University of Illinois plan to visit the site of last month’s deadly mudslide in Snohomish County.

The university said Thursday  the researchers will visit the town of Oso to look at the mudslide’s impact, investigate environmental and geological causes and study any role land-use policies may have had in the disaster.

The March 22 landslide killed at least 41 people, burying homes in the town about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.

The Illinois researchers are funded by a Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Rapid Response Grant. Recovery efforts are still under way,  so the researchers say they’ll wait to make their trip until local officials open restricted areas.
