Five bodies found after Canada snow slide

Search manager Martin Colwell said four bodies were recovered at the bottom of Mount Harvey and a fifth was located several hours later. Choi received a call at 1 a.m. last night from her brother-in-law who said the RCMP had told him there was no hope his wife would be found alive.

"She was holding (her) mom", said Kim, who was asked by the families with connections to the Korean community in the Vancouver area to speak on their behalf.

"They didn't do anything wrong", he said. "I can't say I know anyone personally, but it impacts us because it's very easy to imagine this could have been my parents, or my friends parents".

He said it appears the group stepped out on the ledge, or cornice, of unsupported snow and it collapsed under them.

A South Korean national was among five climbers who were killed in a recent small avalanche on a mountain near Vancouver, Canada, Seoul's foreign ministry said Monday.

Jared Kushner omits some foreign contacts on security form
It is being claimed that POTUS plans to ax Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in the upcoming weeks. One is family, the other isn't, and Kushner has nearly certainly invested more of his "brand" in Trump than Bannon has.

Westbrook, Thunder Face Booker And The Fledgling Suns
Booker tied his own franchise record for consecutive points he set on January 14 against the San Antonio Spurs in Mexico City. Houston missed seven straight shots in span before Eric Gordon ended the drought with a 3-pointer to make it 97-93.

Mr Colwell said using the trails up to the top of Mount Harvey is not usually unsafe but there were some very steep cliffs near the summit and getting too close to the edge can be hazardous. He descended and phoned 911. Family members of the hikers gathered at a school in Lions Bay near the trail where the walkers went missing, the Vancouver Sun newspaper said. The ledges can easily collapse and are hard to spot.

He believes there is a possibility that the ledge may have collapsed with some of the hikers on it.

On its Facebook site, North Shore Rescue describe the call out as a "possible code Alpha", which normally relates to an avalanche.

The weather in the area, north of Vancouver, has been harsh and unstable since Friday.
