The official death toll from last month’s landslide in Oso increased to 41 Monday, with 39 of those victims having been positively identified.

Four people are listed as missing. As of Monday morning, it was not confirmed whether any of them are among the two bodies who have yet to be identified.

Harborview Medical Center said Monday it had discharged the last of its Oso patients over the weekend, 38-year-old Mark Lambert.

President Obama plans to visit the Oso mudslide Tuesday to meet with victim families and first responders, one month to the day that a hillside gave way and buried about three-dozen homes along the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River.

Obama is making the brief stop in Washington as he heads to Asia for an eight-day trip to Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines.
