Wash. official: Fatalities to go up substantially

DARRINGTON, Wash. (AP) - In the Washington state community that was devastated by a mudslide over the weekend, authorities say the number of confirmed dead is going to climb dramatically over the next couple of days, as the medical examiner's office catches up with the recovery effort.

The bodies of 25 victims have already been recovered or located in the debris, but there are 90 people who are confirmed as missing.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office so far has identified one victim, 45-year-old Christina Jefferds.
