Girl,14, Rescued After Being Trapped for Hours Under Collapsed Montecito Home

Bleckel was among those on the missing persons list, according to Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown.

Already scorched by the massive Thomas Fire in December, hillsides in Montecito collapsed in less than 15 minutes. Slowly but surely the floodwaters on the 101 Freeway began to recede.

Cullen said the work has been exhausting and, at times, emotional. Sawyer Corey and 25-year-old Morgan were initially pronounced missing.

Rohter founded St. Augustine Academy in Ventura, California, in 1994, current headmaster and friend Michael Van Hecke said.

Since Tuesday, hundreds of emergency workers, friends and family, have been trudging through mud looking for people amidst the destruction.

The team was requested by authorities in Santa Barbara County earlier Wednesday, the spokeswoman said.

Search-and-rescue dogs are leading the efforts to find the missing in the wake of deadly mudslides that swallowed neighborhoods in Southern California. "Everyone is out in the field". Almost every home on their block was destroyed.

Asked what he'd do if his family is ever the recipient of another voluntary evacuation order, Marco Farrell's response was succinct: "Definitely go".

There are now five active missing persons cases, Brown said, though that number has continued to fluctuate throughout the week.

Santa Barbara County authorities sent a shudder through the community early Thursday when they reported that the number of people unaccounted for had surged to 48.

The aftermath in Montecito showed the destructive power of the debris flows: Home foundations swept bare, tangled piles of shattered debris, head-high boulders strewn about and the deaths of residents.

"The resulting slurry of rock and mud may pick up trees, houses and cars", USGS says.

"It was sobering", Miller said. Some neighbors did the same, tired too, and wondering if the rains could really be as risky as the historic fire they had just escaped.

The path of the flooding was graphically illustrated on the side of a white colonial-style house, where a dark gray stain created a wavy pattern halfway up the front windows.

Anxious family members awaited word on loved ones Wednesday as rescue crews searched grimy debris and ruins for more than a dozen people missing after mudslides in Southern California destroyed an estimated 100 houses, swept cars to the beach and left at least 17 victims dead.

"I have a very pleasant existence in Montecito", Dick Wolf, creator of the '"Law & Order" television empire, told The Associated Press in 2014. Large boulders were washed out of a previously dry creek bed and scattered across the road like so many kids blocks. "She had been trapped for hours in a pile of wood that was once her house". Its belly and paws were black from the mud.

"I just kind of waited it out because I did not want to go down to Toro Canyon while. the mudslide was actually going on", he said.

Monday, emergency officials again told residents of much of Montecito to leave. New Cuyama saw less than a half an inch. It was raining, but the storm's roar had gone silent. I am also an editor for Turning Point News and a foreign correspondent for Snip.And in case you were wondering, it's supposed to be pronounced "Wit-2". "Santa Maria by the weekend will be in the low 70s", Seto said.

"We're going to do what we do", Winfrey said. The hills are charred and brown, and the streams that carry water to the ocean are swollen.

"We're retired so we're in no rush", said Steve Fisk.

Contact with contaminated water can lead to symptoms that include diarrhea, vomiting, stomach cramps, fever, ear and eye infections, neurological problems and skin rashes as well as loss of appetite and weight loss from bacterial infections. Parts of Highway 101 in the area remained closed, swamped by debris flows that slid down fire-scarred mountains in the area.

"Crews are working day and night to clear the road ways".

A last-minute decision to take in a punk rock concert in Los Angeles kept Justin Deckard and Alyssa Saldana safely away from the pounding storm that wreaked death and devastation, but left them trapped in their auto when they tried to return to the University of California, Santa Barbara, for final exams. Atkinson said they've been using pool water for their toilets and to shave.
