It was a turbulent weather day here in central Puget Sound with thunderstorms and hail. Heavy snow also fell near Snoqualmie Pass (53 miles east of Seattle on I-90). This mountain pass saw two avalanches as a result. In the one, a 12-person snow-shoeing party got hit, but all were accounted for without serious injuries by end of day Saturday. In the other avalanche three experienced hikers were carried more than 1,200 feet. By Saturday night one still had not been found, with hopes now dimming that he is still alive.
