The number of fatalities in a mudslide in Washington state will rise "substantially" in the next two days, authorities say.

Sixteen bodies have been recovered and another nine bodies have been found but not yet retrieved.

Some 90 people remain missing after the 177ft (54m) wall of mud hit the town of Oso, north of Seattle.
