Answer by kiwiJOEY
Last I heard the death toll was 154 and there are about 50 people missing. The final death toll is expected to be around 240.

Identifying the bodies is a slow process because of the nasty damage to some of the bodies, they're relying on DNA methods for many of them as unfortunately they were disfigured to a point where visual identification is useless.

Yes, the burials had begun to those who could be identified quickly. And the wind picked up.
