Mudslide death toll hits 34

The death toll for Snohomish County mudslide is now at 34, the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office said this morning.

Officially, 30 people have been identified, according to the medical examiner.

On Monday, crews from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers were working on an 1,800-foot long berm that will help allow the draining of an area the size of about 33 football fields, where some of the 12 remaining victims of the Oso mudslide may lie buried.
