Video shows mudslide knocking train off tracks near Seattle, Washington

EVERETT, Wash. - Some stunning video from the West Coast shows how powerful the forces of nature can be.

The incident involves a train and a mudslide in Everett, Washington – near Seattle.

The video shows a hillside collapsing and slamming into a freight train. The mudslide was caused by heavy rain and snow in that region.

Even though the train was knocked off the tracks, no one was hurt in the ordeal.

It did, however, cause delays for other trains on that stretch of tracks.
