California town at risk of more mudslides

Geologists say that La Conchita remains at risk of mudslides nine years after the last one devastated the community.

    It has been a month since the mudslide in Washington state. Further south in California, another town is still coming to terms with a mudslide that happened nine years ago. Ten people died in La Conchita in 2005 and geologists say it could happen again.

    Al Jazeera's John Hendren reports from California.
