OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee is calling for a moment of silence to honor the victims of the deadly mudslide near Oso.

Inslee on Friday asked state residents to pause at 10:37 a.m. Saturday. The huge slide that destroyed the rural neighborhood in Snohomish County struck at that time on March 22. He urged people to “join together and silently send our thoughts and prayers to the families of Oso.”

The tragedy is one of the worst in Washington history and one of the deadliest landslides seen in the United States.
