I know it's hard to find any good news. But on the plus side 151 people were rescued. More than 1,200 rescuers were involved, assisted by thermal-imaging drones, which is impressive

Lots of sad news stories today. I'm glad they were able to rescue so many, but so sad for the families of the others.
