As California mudslide death toll hits 18, crews keep up the search

Slowly but surely the floodwaters on the 101 Freeway began to recede. "Crews are working day and night to clear the road ways". "It's like we're on an island". "So, we were just able to get back into our house on December 27, and I got back over the holidays, and I just drove around". Residents were still in shock over the loss of life. Overall, 28 people were injured.

Sodden hillsides gave way, unleashing a torrent of mud, water, uprooted trees and boulders onto the valley below and causing what the police described as "traumatic injuries" to the victims, who ranged in age from 3 to 89. "We've lost so many lives and it's a tiny community and nobody would've expected, certainly, I did not, that after we survived the fire and the rain came, who would've expected we have this devastation again with the mudslides, and so soon". They were supported by K-9 units, 10 helicopters and six bulldozers.

Seventeen people have died and hundreds of homes have been destroyed after mudslides tore through Montecito, California, early Tuesday morning.

Mudflows washed out a almost 30-mile stretch of the 101 Freeway between Santa Barbara and Ventura, and also prompted evacuations in parts of Burbank and Los Angeles on Tuesday.

"They can search everything from a building collapse to a canyon to a mudslide", said Brent Brainard, canine handler.

"This room is always so full of positivity and love and today, I really need it", the comedian told her audience.

In the areas under the mandatory evacuation, officials said no residents will be allowed to return to their homes, and the order might be in place for one or two weeks.

For days beforehand, the county had issued repeated warnings through social media, news media and community information emails about the potential for mudflows from the huge wildfire scar in the hills above neighborhoods. There were just signs everywhere that said thank you and grateful just everywhere saying thank you to the firefighters and first responders.

"The partner of one of the people killed in the California mudslides says the victim had just enough time to shout, "'grab onto some wood and don't let go.'" before he was swept to his death.

"The missing persons were reported by family and friends, and resided in areas that were heavily damaged during the storm and subsequent mudslides", the sheriff's office said. "They weren't concerned", Weimer said.

Farrell said that he, his parents and their dog sheltered in their hallway filled with thigh-high water for over an hour as the flood rushed into their home.
