The Santa Barbara Humane Society is helping provide emergency shelter and food for domestic animals of people who had to evacuate their homes, according to their Facebook page.

Mud flowed "waist-high" 30 miles away in Montecito after heavy rainfall shortly after midnight, said Mike Eliason, a public information officer for the Santa Barbara County Fire Department.

As of Thursday morning, the death toll has reached 17 people and there are now eight missing, according to the Santa Barbara Country Sheriff's Office.

The mudslides toppled trees, demolished cars and covered blocks of quiet residential neighbourhoods with a thick layer of mud, blocking Highway 101, a major north-south route along the coast.

At least 50 people have been rescued by helicopters in the area, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said in a Tuesday night news conference.

Firefighters slogged through mud and debris to reach 14-year-old Laura Cantin in a rescue effort that took almost six hours Tuesday in Santa Barbara County. "Certainly although we knew that this was coming, it was just - 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 as a result of that", Brown said.

Many Americans may still be buzzing about Oprah Winfrey's presidential prospects following her rousing speech at the Golden Globes, but the media mogul is focusing on a more immediate issue: flooding and mudslides in Southern California.

It was another frustrating turn for those living in Montecito, a town that has been under siege and subject to repeated evacuation orders in recent weeks, first because of a monster wildfire last month, then because of downpours and mudslides. There's more debris than normal.
