'Forever Changed': Remembering the Oso Mudslide One Year Later

A booming roar. Houses thrown onto a highway. A flood of mud and debris. This was the horrifying scene in Oso, a town of less than 200 people in Snohomish County, Washington, when a devastating mudslide swept through one year ago, claiming 43 lives and dozens of homes. The mudslide cut off a main roadway for months, displaced families and stole people's relatives, friends and neighbors. A year later, residents of Oso and the surrounding towns of Arlington and Darrington shared with NBC News their memories of the slide, recollections of the harrowing days that followed and stories of how they pulled together to rebuild — and reshape — their lives.
