President Barack Obama is en route Tuesday to survey the damage caused by a deadly mudslide that claimed more than 40 lives last month in Oso, Wash.

Obama is due to deliver remarks after meeting with search crews, victims’ families and others involved in the recovery effort before leaving on a four-country tour of Asia.

The disaster has officially claimed 41 lives and more than two dozen homes. Search crews have been digging through 70-foot-deep mud littered with debris in a search for the two people who remain missing.
