EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office says one more person has been added to the list of people killed in the Washington state mudslide.

Authorities said Tuesday afternoon that at least 35 people have died, but officials are still working to identify four of them.

Eleven people remain on the sheriff’s list of people missing from the March 22 slide that buried homes along the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River, about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.

Searchers with dogs continue to probe the debris field as the Army Corps of Engineers builds a berm to reduce flooding.
