On the fourth day of search for victims of the southern California mudslides, the death toll has increased. Most who had been stranded in their homes have been rescued, he said, including about 300 residents and staff members who were evacuated by rescue workers Thursday from the Casa Dorinda retirement home east of Olive Mill Road.

"We have a yard to redo and hopefully our insurance will help out with that, but the people across from me, newer homes, gone", Garrett Speirs, a 54-year-old artist who has been living in Montecito for 20 years, said.

The latest victim, 87-year-old Joseph Bleckel, was found in his Montecito home on Friday, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said, adding that the remaining missing were between the ages of 2 and 30.

"The issue for us is the massive amount of water on the highway", Shivers said. While this list often fluctuates as new information is obtained, here is a current list of people reported missing that are considered active investigations.

"The traits that can make dogs unsuitable as family pets and land them in a shelter-intense energy and extreme drive-are exactly the qualities required in a search dog", the nonprofit says on its website.

She said the carriages are standing room only, and that the conductors were not bothering to collect tickets.

"It's as exhausting, frustrating and tedious as looking for a needle in a haystack", LAFD Battalion Chief Mark Akahoshi said, while hunched over a topographical map of surrounding terrain studded with ranches and mansions offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

In the disaster impact zone, searchers used chain saws and rakes to remove logs and sift through the remnants of what was left of multimillion-dollar homes.

He said the zone, which includes areas formerly under voluntary evacuation advisories, would be in effect for one week but that residents should plan for two.

GOP Senator Says Trump Didn't Use Vulgarity for Haiti and African Nations
Durbin (Ill.), told reporters Friday that Trump had used the vulgar word "not just once but repeatedly " during the meeting. Dick Durbin and Republican Sen. "I can understand you either saying they were said or they were not said ", Wallace said .

Much of the community of about 9,000 remained under mandatory evacuation orders, even unscathed areas, as crews both removed debris and worked to restore water, sanitation, power and gas.

"We have got to get those basins cleaned as fast as we can", Lewin said.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department created a page with the names, ages and photos of the missing people.

Jim Mitchell, the oldest person to die in the mudslide, had just celebrated his 89th birthday the day before the Tuesday mudslide. The walls at one end of a home had disappeared, leaving its roof hanging precariously.

Thankfully there weren't any deaths or major damage, but it drove home another fact of life for Californians: The threat of the "next big one" may be right around the corner. "To get people here takes time and we're finally getting that request for influx".

Returning residents must follow the direction of law enforcement and stay out of restricted areas.

Henzgen, the Los Angeles Fire Department captain, pointed to a nearly empty lot. There have been 27 flu-related deaths of patients younger than 65, more than normally seen during this point of the season. The residents probably figured they were far enough away from where the Thomas fire recently burned and not in danger of mudslides or flash floods. It wasn't until 3:50 a.m. Tuesday that Santa Barbara County officials sent an alert through a federal wireless system that buzzes every cellphone within range of a working tower, just like an Amber Alert.

At 440 square miles, it became the largest wildfire in California records.
