NO SURVIVORS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN DAYS. BUT THIS STILL IS *NOT* A RECOVERY OPERATION. As far as I'm concerned, we're still in rescue mode. I haven't lost hope yet and there's a lot of people up there that haven't lost hope yet. WITH THAT IN MIND, SEARCHERS WORK DELIBERATELY AND DELICATELY. DOZENS OF PEOPLE REMAINED UNACCOUNTED FOR THURSDAY AS RESCUERS CONTINUED TO DIG INTO THE GROUND. We're not going to run big heavy equipment over areas where we may collapse something where we could have a survivor. Now I want to brace everybody that that chance is very slim. But we haven't given up. What we're doing is slowly walking through piece by piece, moving as much as we can, taking shovels, using our hands, whatever we can do to get in there to see what we can find. THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE'S FORECAST CALLS FOR MORE RAIN TODAY (FRIDAY) AND BEYOND. IN FACT, SHOWERS COULD CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT FULL WEEK OR MORE. ALL THAT RAIN WOULD ONLY HAMPER SEARCH EFFORTS EVEN FURTHER. I'M ANDREW SPENCER REPORTING.
