EVERETT, Wash. — The number of confirmed deaths in the Washington state mudslide rose to 30 today with the release of another victim’s name.

The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office says 67-year-old Gloria Halstead of Arlington died of multiple blunt force injuries in the accident. She had been on the list of missing, which now drops to 17.

Recovery crews are still searching for bodies in the March 22 landslide that crushed the community of Oso, about 55 miles north of Seattle.
