**NOTE** KHQ's Sean Owsley and Matt Rogers are in Oso for LIVE coverage from the devastated community as crews continue to search for the remaining victims and clean up what the mudslide destroyed. President Obama is expected to touch down in Oso on Tuesday for a brief visit with families of the victims.

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The death toll from the mudslide that hit the Washington community of Oso has risen to 41 - and just two names remain on the list of people still missing.
   
The Snohomish County medical examiner's office counted two more victims Monday, but said they have not yet been officially identified. The sheriff's office removed two names from its missing list, which had stood at four.
   
The March 22 landslide tore through about three dozen homes. Oso is about 55 miles northeast of Seattle.
   
The search for bodies continues as President Barack Obama prepares to visit the site Tuesday and meet with victims' families and first responders. Obama is making the brief stop as he heads to Asia for an eight-day trip to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines.

    HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) - At first, it was an orange traffic cone with a weed growing out of it. Now, the roadside attraction dubbed "Cone Weed" is something of a Christmas miracle to locals. WBTV reports someone decorated the "Cone Weed" with tinsel and ornaments last week. The weed has been growing unencumbered across from the Huntersville Fire Station for a year and has amassed a cult following.
