(KING)  Canine reinforcements have arrived in Oso, Washington state to help in the search and recovery effort.  

On Thursday two more FEMA dogs and handlers arrived at the search site.

FEMA has brought in 20 teams from all over the country to blanket the 1,500 foot wide disaster area in hopes of bringing much needed closure to families. 

There are less than 200 FEMA certified dog and handler teams in the country.   Crews have been called in from as far off as New York, Florida and Maryland.
