UPDATE: Death Toll In Washington Mudslide Rises To 37

Posted: Updated:
EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The death toll from the mudslide that hit the Washington town of Oso has risen to 37.
   
The Snohomish County medical examiner's office said Tuesday it has received one more victim. The person's name has not been released.
   
The sheriff's office says seven other people are still listed as missing.
   
A search for bodies continues in the debris left when the March 22 landslide raced across the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River and buried dozens of homes in the riverfront community about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.

DARRINGTON, Wash. (AP) - The Transportation Department says it could take one to three months to clear debris from the mile-long stretch of Highway 530 covered by the Oso mudslide. It blocks direct access between Darrington and the Interstate 5 corridor.
    
Department officials told residents of Darrington Monday night they may be allowed limited use of an access road that has been restricted to emergency vehicles.
    
The department and Snohomish County are holding more meetings about Highway 530 Tuesday evening at the Oso Community Chapel and Wednesday evening at the Stillaguamish Senior Center in Arlington.
    
Meanwhile, the search continues for the bodies of seven people still missing from the March 22 landslide. The bodies of 36 people have been recovered.
