The search for missing people from this weekend's landslide in Washington state appears to shift to a recovery effort.

Officials say 176 people are unaccounted for with the death toll still at 14. That number is expected to increase.
Teams from the National Guard and the federal government are working with local and state authorities, but conditions on the ground are tough.

Conditions may not get any better. The nearby river is rising and rain is expected to fall over the area for the next few days.
