Near their property, a least two homes were carried off their foundations by the force of the mudslides - and as bulldozers began to clear muck and debris from areas already searched by rescue teams, utility crews have started trying to fix downed power lines and snapped telephone poles.

Numerous locations hardest hit by the torrents had previously been devastated by the worst wildfire in California history, increasing worries about the possibility of mudslides in the freshly burned areas.

Oprah also shared a video of herself walking through the mud after her home in California suffered the effects of the storm.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said emergency personnel notified residents in the evacuation zone on Monday evening.

A mud-caked 14-year-old girl was among the dozens rescued on the ground on Tuesday.

Johnson saw his home get wiped out by the mudslides, Time reported. An area above Montecito called Romero Canyon has been cut off completely from the outside world, and rescue teams are trying to evacuate several hundred residents trapped there. "Praying for the survivors and preparing for whatever may come".

Total snow accumulation of one to three inches may occur on top of up to one quarter inch of ice accumulations. Heavy rain is moving through the Worcester area and a flood warning has been issued until Saturday morning.

With many roads blocked, rescue crews used helicopters to pluck people from their rooftops.

"The number of confirmed deaths is 17, and the number of injured confirmed is 28".

"It was literally a carpet of mud and debris everywhere with huge boulders, rocks, downed trees, power lines, wrecked cars, lots of obstacles and challenges for rescue personnel to get to homes, let alone to get people out of them". "I've just been clawing through the mud and it's hard to hold hope when the mud is so deep", he said, "but it's your mom.so you just have to keeping going".

Police say 17 people remain missing.

The number of confirmed deaths from flooding and mudslides in California stands at 17, with USA authorities stepping up their search for at least 20 missing persons. The widespread wildfires that burned through the region destroyed vegetation and left the soil scorched.
