Death toll from California mudslides rises to 19

They failed to find any Wednesday, the 41-year-old married father of three said, but didn't find any bodies either, which provided him some solace.

Santa Barbara County crews worked through the holidays to defend coastal communities from the second half of Southern California's familiar cycle of fire and flood. "You have to start accepting the reality of that". They also loved their dog, Gigi, who is missing.

In her almost 30 years as a renowned Montecito resident and businesswoman, Rebecca crossed paths with almost every community member in some capacity. None of the adult dead shared their last names.

This is the terrifying moment a flash flood brought mud and debris barreling down a Southern California street.

On Thursday, Santa Barbara sheriff Bill Brown said of the missing, "We are certainly searching for a miracle right now".

As of Friday evening, Santa Barbara County sheriff's officials had identified seven people who were still missing.

As authorities continue to search for those missing in the deadly Montecito mudslide disaster, officials announced that USA 101 would remain closed indefinitely. She said some missing-person reports are quickly cleared but others take time to resolve.

"We have got to get those basins cleaned as fast as we can", Lewin said. Some rescuers used poles to probe the muck for bodies, while others waded chest-deep in the mire.


Geologists and forecasters warned that intense rain could trigger deadly mudslides from the scorched areas.

The message, similar to an Amber Alert for abducted children, was sent about 3:50 a.m. Tuesday to all registered cellphones in areas that were under voluntary and mandatory evacuations because of heavy rains that threatened mudflows in the wake of the Thomas fire, officials said. First there were record-breaking fires, then rain and flooding, and now the tight-knit California community is reeling from mudslides that further ravaged their homes.

Some of them are owned by celebrities, including TV hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey. The cost of the mudslides' destruction is still unknown, but authorities believe at least 400,000 homes have been destroyed or damaged.

"Helicopters rescued some people who climbed onto the roofs of their homes to escape the torrent of water, and mud".

He was still shaken by his harrowing experience Tuesday with his pregnant wife and two young children as the violent gusher arrived with a deafening rumble.

"Everyone was saying to me, 'How's your property?' " she said. The water was flowing out of water mains and coming from fire hydrants. "I'm looking out the front window, I think everything's fine, everything's fine, and it wasn't until I put my boots on and went outside walking and I realized everything wasn't indeed fine".

Sharing the same photo as her sister, Gigi Hadid asked her Twitter followers to "Please keep the families of Santa Barbara in your thoughts and prayers".
