Another person located after California mudslide

Forty-three people are still missing, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a news conference Thursday.

Authorities imposed a "mandatory evacuation zone" around large portions of Montecito Thursday night, warning residents that they should prepare to be away from their homes for as long as two weeks.

"Everybody was exhausted from the fire warnings", Weimer said Friday.

At least 17 people have died and hundreds of homes have been damaged after torrential rains created mudslides in several Southern California communities that scrambled to escape wildfires just a few months ago, ABC News reports.

More than 1,200 workers have been deployed in the town of about 9,000 residents for the search and cleanup effort. "That is why we have the canines to help us assist in those efforts to either sniff out or guide us to areas potentially that could have other people that need assistance and rescue".

Another storm-related death was reported in Northern California, where a man was killed when his vehicle was apparently struck by falling rocks in a landslide Tuesday evening in Napa County.

About 100 homes have been destroyed and 300 others damaged in Montecito, a community known for its multimillion-dollar properties.


And because of the fire, communities below the scarred terrain could remain at risk of mudslides for years, said Randall Jibson, a research geologist with the US Geological Survey.

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

Speaking on Thursday, he said: "Realistically we suspect we are going to have the discovery of more people killed in this incident". Conte said Riskin, who was the maid of honor at her wedding, took joy in pairing the ideal home with the flawless family and loved cooking, going for long walks and spending movie nights with her family.

Olive Mill Road and the Montecito Inn are just up the street from the Coral Casino, and it, too, was transformed by the mudslides. "I screamed at my family and water started coming into the house".

Firefighters and utility crews have been working with chain saws and jackhammers, while heavy machinery was used to scoop up mud and rocks around buckled and flattened homes.

Anderson says the number dropped because people were located, but it could continue to fluctuate greatly.

"There are mothers, fathers, grandfathers, siblings and the list goes on and on". "Until that window is closed completely, we're doing every search like it's the first time the area's been searched". A family friend said Ramos called home daily to her relatives in her native town of Marquelia near Acapulco on Mexico's Pacific coast. "(It's a) good feeling to help folks when they're in need. Riskin was swept away after a mudslide tore through her living room, Conte said, adding that her husband survived because he was in bed in a part of the house that stayed intact. She hoped to find them in a shelter or hospital. Company spokeswoman Erin Lammers said Riskin was a ballerina with the American Ballet Theater in NY before an injury cut short her dancing career. "I think we all thought, 'Well, it's a new year, I've left that stuff behind us'".
