Dramatic video shows California flash flood rushing towards people in vehicle

With debris cleared from the tracks, Amtrak's Pacific Surfliner is now running five round-trips per day through the 11-mile closed area, and Island Packers and Condor Express are offering daily ferries from Ventura Harbor to Santa Barbara Harbor.

Residents in some areas were subject to a new mandatory evacuation on Friday, emergency officials said, adding the unstable environment remained a threat.

Sheriff Bill Brown gave the larger number Thursday but cautioned that many or most of those people may simply have been unreachable to the family and friends who reported they couldn't find them.

"But we're going to do what we do".

"It was like a construction crew came in and wiped it, it was clean", Weimer said in a telephone interview Friday. "He said so many times that after his passing, 'Make sure everyone prays for my soul.' We will, Roy!"

As the mudslide cleanup continues in Montecito on January 11, 2018, California Task Force 8 of San Diego searches a property for victims on East Valley Road.

James (Jim) and Alice Mitchell, along with their dog Gigi, were swept away by a mudslide in Montecito.

'The missing persons were reported by family and friends, and resided in areas that were heavily damaged during the storm and subsequent mudslides, ' the sheriff's office said. At least 28 people were injured and crews performed dozens of rescues.

Those stories of successful rescues are what have kept the groups going, 12 hours a day, trudging through the muck that was riddled with sharp objects and possibly raw sewage.

The team was scheduled to depart for San Barbara County at 9 p.m. "You have to start accepting the reality of that". "You never know exactly what the human body is capable of".


The mudslides were caused by heavy rain which sent mud and boulders sliding down the hills stripped of vegetation by the recent wildfires in the area.

"Mud came in an instant, like a dam breaking", Montecito resident Ben Hyatt told CNN.

On the morning of the storm, Grokenberger watched as 2 to 3 feet of water streamed down the street.

Remarkable footage shows Marco Farrell standing outside his Montecito home on Tuesday as a combination of mud, water and debris cascades down the road.

"Everywhere I turned, there was chaos", Montecito resident Shawn Monroe told the Washington Post. "I don't know how I got lulled". "I feel like I escaped". The mudslides began raindrops on top of hillsides in the Los Padres National Forest and then gained momentum as they tore downhill through the neighborhoods, picking up ash, dirt and debris along the way.

In one of the hardest hit areas, a silver Mercedes-Benz, its front and rear fenders completely destroyed, sat atop a tree stump, the only thing left where a home once Saturday.

"The last thing Peter yelled out to me was, 'Lalo, grab onto some wood and don't let go, ' And that was the last I heard of him", Barajas told CBS News.

A semi-tractor trailer sits stuck in mud on U.S. Highway 101, in Montecito. It erupted December 4 in Ventura County and destroyed more than 1,000 structures as it swept through the city of Ventura and then threatened Carpinteria, Summerland and Santa Barbara.
