Cordova avalanche claims one
Five hours after an avalanche turned the two-story Cordova home of Martha Quales and Jerry LeMaster into a pile of snow and debris, rescuers pulled LeMaster out alive. Quales, 63, his longtime companion, died in the slide. Three more homes were destroyed and at least eight other buildings were damaged. (Photo by Jim Lavrakas)
