The front entrance of Harold and Phyllis Zibrowski's Hokah home is unscathed by the mudslide that destroyed the lower level of the house. Harold, 83, was swept into the mudslide when he stepped outside to investigate the situation. He spent more than six hours stuck in the mud as water and debris rushed over him. Throughout the night, Phyllis, 78, yelled out into the darkness for him to hang on - until their son Jim found them at 6 in the morning.
