Mudslide death toll rises by 2 to 41

EVERETT — The death toll from the mudslide that hit the town of Oso has risen to 41.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office counted two more victims Monday but said they have not yet been officially identified.

Four names remain on the list of people missing from the March 22 landslide that tore through about three-dozen homes.

The search for bodies continues with President Barack Obama scheduled to visit the site Tuesday and meet with victim families and first responders. Obama is making the brief stop in Washington as he heads to Asia for an eight-day trip to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines.
