April 8 (Reuters) - The death toll in a mudslide that devastated a rural Washington state community last month rose to 34 on Tuesday as one more body was extricated from the rubble, the Snohomish County medical examiner said.
A rain-soaked hillside collapsed without warning above the north fork of the Stillaguamish River on March 22, unleashing a torrent of mud that engulfed some three dozen homes on the outskirts of the tiny community of Oso. As of Monday, a dozen people remained unaccounted for. (Reporting by Cynthia Johnston; Editing by Scott Malone)
