Oso landslide report yields some answers
EARTH Magazine
Early on March 22, the most damaging landslide in U.S. history devastated the community of Oso, Washington. Forty-three people perished, most inside their homes, when a saturated hillside nearby gave way and a massive mudflow swept over their neighborhood. On July 22, a search crew recovered the last of the 43 bodies, exactly four months after the landslide — and coincidentally on the same day that a team of scientists and engineers released an exhaustive report detailing the event and its implications.

Monitoring can warn of impending slides — at a cost
The Seattle Times
Large landslides don't strike out of the blue. Unstable slopes almost always creep, slough and sag long before they let loose. Monitoring that movement can provide lifesaving warnings, though the approach is rarely used in the northwest. Monitoring, however, is costly.

Estimating earthquake frequency and patterns in the Puget Lowland
The Geological Society of America
The hazard posed by large earthquakes is difficult to estimate because they often occur hundreds to thousands of years apart. Because written records for the Puget Lowland of northwestern Washington cover less than 170 years, the size and frequency of the largest and oldest earthquakes on the Seattle and Tacoma faults are unknown. Past earthquakes can only be estimated through geologic studies of sediments and landforms that are created when faults break the ground surface.
