Desperate search for survivors in California mudslides

Barret added it would "take a lot of time" to get over the natural disasters that have struck the area over the past two months. "Mud came in an instant, like a dam breaking".

Southern California can not catch a break, as fallout from half a dozen historically destructive wildfires continues with this week's widespread flash flooding occurring in Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

This is why mudslides are so unsafe - they build speed so quickly and get bigger as they pick up extra debris so can't always be predicted by rainfall. The mass of mud, vehicles and debris is slowly being cleared from Montecito neighborhoods and highways.

The TV icon's estate was caught up in flooding and mudslides that have killed at least 13 in California. Shortly, he would be moving furniture around to keep the mud from getting into his home. The walls at one end of a home had completely disappeared, leaving its roof hanging precariously.

Josie Gower held onto a door frame when a devastating river of mud rushed inside her Montecito home.

Speaking during a pre-taped episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, set to air on Thursday (11Jan18), she explained, "We were just able to get back into our house December 27th, and".

"For some reason, she opened the front door" and was swept away, Diane Brewer, one of Gower's friends, told CNN.

The Santa Barbara County sheriff said emergency dispatchers received about 600 calls immediately after the rains began early Tuesday. "We ran into the house and right then the boulders busted through our house".

The flood waters were so powerful the deluge wiped out nearly every single home on one block of Randall Road.

"We couldn't go anywhere", Tighe said. The rate of rainfall in Southern California Tuesday was 18 times more than required to produce debris flow, according to an analysis by ABC News meteorologists.

The baby was buried about 4-feet deep and tangled in roots, he said.

"Although we knew this was coming, you couldn't help but be amazed at the intensity of the storm and the result of the mudslide and the water that cascaded down the hills".

"I have lived here my whole life", said Melissa Ausanka-Crues, 29, a nurse.

In Montecito, a 14-year-old girl was rescued after several hours from the rubble of a home destroyed by the heavy rains.

The amount of debris left behind is so massive that a 30-mile stretch of USA 101 between Montecito and Santa Barbara is expected to remain closed for at least 48 hours, said Capt. Cindy Pontes with the California Highway Patrol.
