(Oso, WA) -- President Barack Obama is praising the first responders, volunteers, and officials who are helping the Snohomish County community of Oso recover from last month's devastating mudslide. The president took a tour yesterday of the site of the slide, and met with families who lost loved ones in the disaster. Forty-one people are known dead and two are still listed as missing. Obama told the community that "the whole country is thinking about you, and we're going to make sure that we're there every step of the way."
