'Window closing' to find survivors in USA mudslide

'Window closing' to find survivors in USA mudslide

Mudflows traveled through neighborhoods near where Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres have homes.

County officials have already ordered residents in most of the south-eastern corner of Montecito, an unincorporated community east of the city of Santa Barbara, to leave their homes for what they said was likely to be one or two weeks to aid the search and recovery efforts.

Authorities raised the number of those considered missing to 43 at yesterday's press conference, up from eight earlier in the day, saying that some of those people may be out of town or in a hospital but that others may be deceased.

Geologists and forecasters warned that intense rain could trigger deadly mudslides from the scorched areas.

Though they were unclear of the exact number of fatalities at the time, it has been confirmed that 17 people have perished as a result of the mudslides. People are being hospitalized due to the symptoms, and some medications are running short.

Crews are using backhoes, jackhammers and shovels to look for victims and clear roads.

The drenching rains that unleashed such death and destruction was responsible for containing the largest wildfire in state history.

But the Montecito mudslide disaster is not an easy emergency to work.

The sheriff's office also expanded the evacuation zone in the Montecito area on Thursday, as traffic on the already-clogged roads is hindering efforts by rescue and fix crews to access the devastation. Days before the mudslides, the county issues repeated warnings on social media, news media and emails about the potential for mudslides during the major storm. "We will push for every available resource to help Californians recover from these tragedies", Brown said in a statement Thursday. "It's filled with a lot of different types of people form all backgrounds and there are families missing". They also loved their dog, Gigi, who is missing. They're finding people and bodies.

When Winfrey called into DeGeneres' show, she described a tragic scene from her back yard.

"It just went around the house like a teardrop, it was shaped like an eye", O'Dea said.

Both are doing their parts to respond by raising awareness and pledging to do whatever it takes to help rebuild. We're going to come together and we're going to do what great Americans do all the time. In an Instagram post on the same day many Democrats were talking about her for president because of her rousing speech at the Golden Globes, she shared photos of the deep mud in her backyard and video of rescue helicopters hovering over her house.
