DARRINGTON, Wash. - State authorities in Washington say the number of fatalities from a mudslide will go up substantially in the next two days.

Sixteen bodies have been recovered, with nine more found as of Wednesday night.

The Snohomish County District 21 Fire Chief says that officials are not going to count additional recovered victims until the medical examiner's office has caught up with the recovery effort.

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

There are 90 people confirmed missing from the Saturday morning mudslide that took place northeast of Seattle.
