Six months ago, a mountain collapsed near the Washington town of Oso.
Forty-three people died, entire neighborhoods were destroyed and the community was changed, forever.
One of them is the mayor of Darrington, which is 16 miles east of Oso on Highway 530. His name is Dan Rankin.
KCTS and KUOW report:
In the days following the landslide, Mayor Rankin recalls, he did not stop moving. Meeting with government officials, familes, and the media, a once part-time job became round-the-clock. With an air of humility, he reflects, "I had to make sure that things weren't falling through the cracks, people weren't falling through the cracks. But, you still don't feel like you've done enough."
