Five People Missing After California Mudslides; Thomas Fire Finally Out

Montecito is sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the sprawling Los Padres National Forest and canyons from the nearby mountains channelled the torrents of mud, rock and debris towards residential areas.

The number of missing after a California mudslide has fluctuated wildly, due to shifting definitions, the inherent uncertainty that follows a natural disaster, and just plain human error. Ventura's Air Squad 6 dedicated helicopters to join Santa Barbara in the rescue effort.

The mudslide swept through the coastal community of Montecito on Tuesday morning, catching numerous victims entirely off-guard. "(Montecito) is beyond recognizable". But by the time they woke up, it was too late; the vehicle was swept away.

Caltrans crews are working to fix inundated portions of Highway 101, but the freeway isn't expected to be reopened until Monday at the earliest, according to CHP Capt. Cindy Pontes. "I think all of us have learned our lessons on this one". Marco Farrell, 45, said he was two blocks away when he saw the slide descending on Olive Mill Road.

"All of a sudden we heard that rumble, and the whole house started shaking". "Literally. Ran for my life". About a block up from Farrell's home, firefighters were helping Devon Crail and his wife, Tiare, retrieve items from his parents' house. The mangled frames of abandoned cars, drenched in mud.

Trashed areas were awash in a sea of mud, with only the tallest trees standing and some homes buried up to their roofs.

Crail credited a retaining wall with saving the home from more serious damage.

Emergency workers on the ground have doubled since Thursday, with about 1,250 trying to find and rescue those still trapped, Santa Barbara County spokeswoman Amber Anderson said.

On Thursday, the number provided by authorities went from 48, down to eight, then back up to 43.

In midlife, when Rohter married and had three children, "the Lord tapped him for bigger things", said Van Hecke.

"We've gotten multiple reports of rescuers falling through manholes that were covered with mud, swimming pools that were covered up with mud", said Anthony Buzzerio, a Los Angeles County fire battalion chief. It took out hedges and trees.

An evacuation order has been extended and people are being warned that those staying behind may hinder the rescue operation.

As night fell, the sounds of chainsaws and heavy equipment filled the air, which hung heavy over the town with a smell of ash mixed with mud.

Just in the past month, the film consultant, along with her pair of dogs, had spent two nights in a Red Cross shelter, a night in her minivan, and two weeks with a friend in Paso Robles, about 100 miles north on the now-blocked Highway 101. But what they saw, what they experienced, as they stood there, in the most very bad of environments, was heroic to me. Jeff Bridges tweeted that his home was "severely damaged" but that his family was safe. He went on to become a successful real-estate broker who was able to retire at a young age and devote himself to philanthropic work. This is an enormous loss for our community. Celebrities like Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Rob Lowe own homes there.

She stood in mud as she said she was "devastated" by the damage to her neighbour's house.

Ben Hyatt told reporters, "I woke up my wife and we just did not know what to do".
