Five People Missing After California Mudslides; Thomas Fire Finally Out

Ellis Copeland | 14 January, 2018, 13:15

Workers used pumps and hoses while heavy equipment cleared away debris.

But the Montecito mudslide disaster is not an easy emergency to work. "It's like we're on an island". "This remains a very active search and rescue mission."In updating the missing figure, Brown said that the precise number could fluctuate significantly".

Brewer said Gower lived passionately, whether she was interacting with children, grandchildren, friends - or strangers.

Amber Anderson, a spokeswoman for the recovery effort, says their top priority is reaching those people, getting them to safety and finding the people who are still missing.

The water and powerful debris flows destroyed about 100 homes and damaged 300 others in the Montecito community, known for its multimillion-dollar properties.

A 30-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 101 linking Ventura and Santa Barbara was still covered in heavy debris and not expected to reopen until Monday. So there was a really emotional moment, ' he said.

Neighborhoods were littered with uprooted trees and downed power lines, and front yards in homes filled with mud were strewn with boulders.

The immediate evacuation zones were people have been killed have been extended on Thursday. They came away shaken after seeing pictures of the flooded Highway 101 and the devastation to downtown Montecito, where they had a veterinary clinic for many years. Residents will not be allowed to return to their homes while the evacuation order is lifted, which may not happen for one or two weeks, officials said.

Residents of the area received multiple warnings of possible flash floods on social media and by email, however only an estimated 10-15% of residents evacuated prior to the worst of the storm.

The 59-year-old talk show host has revealed she and her wife Portia De Rossi had to leave their $40 million Montecito estate earlier this week after catastrophic mudslides ripped through the area, claiming the lives of 17 people, leaving a further 17 still missing and destroying hundreds of homes. "It was activated at the appropriate time actually when the event was occurring", Brown said.

"We had thought about leaving, but we had just had the fires", he said, referring to the recent wildfires that stripped the area of needed vegetation.

The SDFD California Task Force 8 canine search and rescue mission ready package team was scheduled to depart Wednesday at 3 p.m.

"One of the things that I want to talk about is you know, we've had these awful fires all over California and one of the hardest hit areas is where I live in Montecito", she continued.

Marveling at the scale of destruction, several firefighters wondered aloud how some areas would ever get back to normal because there's just so much mud covering the ground, never mind the damage to homes and other buildings.

"Had we not gone over there, I don't think that kid would have [survived]", he added.
