EVERETT, Wash. -- The death toll in the Oso landslide continues to rise.

The Snohomish County Medical Examiner's Office raised the death toll to 36 people Wednesday; of those, 32 people have been identified. Officials are still trying to identify four of those people.

Detectives with the Snohomish County sheriff's office were able to cross another name off the list of missing from the Oso landslide and it's now down to 10 people.

Three FEMA disaster recovery centers are open in Oso, Arlington and Darrington to help those affected by the slide.

The Army Corps of Engineers is now working to build a berm to get water out of a flooded area so crews can look for more victims.
