EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- The death toll from the landslide that hit the Washington community of Oso has risen to 34, with the addition of one more person to the number of victims.

The Snohomish County medical examiner's office said Tuesday it is still working to identify four of the dead.

The county sheriff's office has said a dozen people remain missing from the March 22 slide that buried homes along the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.
