Jeopardy clue about Oso mudslide triggers reaction

Posted: Updated:
KHQ.com - A number of people took to social media this week to complain and compliment the game show 'Jeopardy' after the show used a clue about the deadly Oso mudslide. 

The clue read: "After heavy rain in March 2014, one of these moving at 60 mph crushed the small town of Oso."

The Department of Natural Resources says the Oso mudslide was one of the deadliest slides in U.S. history, killing 43 people. The mudslide engulfed 49 homes and several buildings when it sent mud and debris across a square mile of land in Snohomish County. More than 600 people, including more than 160 volunteers, worked on recovery operations.

Some of the comments on the Jeopardy Facebook page were thanking the show for educating more people about the devastating loss their community suffered. Other comments were angry that the show made them remember such a difficult time. What do you think? Weigh in on KHQ's Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/KHQLocalNews.
