EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - More than $9 million has been raised to help recovery efforts in the five months since a mudslide wiped out a neighborhood in Oso and blocked the highway to Darrington.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1zdefAe ) United Way of Snohomish County and the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation together have raised more than $4.5 million. They have earmarked about $3 million to be distributed over the next two years.

The American Red Cross also has raised $4.5 million and distributed or earmarked $2 million of that, with the balance being kept in reserve.

The March 22 slide killed 43 people, destroyed or damaged 48 homes and blocked Highway 530.
