Mudslide victims range in age from 3 to 89

California mudslide death toll rises to 19

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

Authorities have released the names of 17 people killed by mudslides in California. The number provided by county officials earlier in the day was eight missing.

The search for additional possible victims is continuing.

Almost 3,400 residents in Montecito are without water or power and over 300 are trapped in their homes as first responders scrambled to conduct rescue work in the wake of the devastating flash floods and deadly mudslides which left at least 15 dead, 25 injured and dozens missing, said County spokeswoman Yaneris Muniz.

NeoTract, a maker of devices used in the medical field of urology, has launched a fundraising page asking for financial support for the family of Kim Cantin.

At the beginning of the clip, the 45-year-old is seen yelling at the driver of a vehicle going up the street to turn around because a flash flood was coming down the hill.

Hyatt and other residents are recalling the chaos that ensued as Tuesday's deadly mudslides and flooding devastated parts of Southern California.

Jennifer Ramos says Marilyn Ramos shared the home with her husband, Antonio Benitez, and the family of his brother, Victor Benitez.

The California mudslide that killed at least 18 people is causing distress miles from where the torrent of muck and boulders stopped, as a local economy that thrives on tourism and the lure of sun-soaked beaches was left reeling.


The statement says Riskin was an "exceptional woman" who had exuded strength, grace and elegance.

"The mud just." she said, her voice trailing off. On Thursday they believed dozens were unaccounted for, but the number was revised down.

In one of the worst-hit areas of Montecito, mud blew through doors and windows, filling the interiors of houses with sludge and debris.

Five people are still missing after the mudslides, according to an update on the County of Santa Barbara's website, which warned people to "anticipate the numbers of missing persons to fluctuate significantly".

"At this moment we are still looking for live victims", Santa Barbara Fire Capt. Gary Pitney said Thursday as about 15 searchers climbed through the rubble in the backyard of a destroyed home while rescue dogs swam through thick water trying to pick up a human scent.

But warnings for residents to leave had been issued for days before the mudslides through social media, news media and community information emails about the potential for mudflows from the huge wildfire scar in hills above neighborhoods. "Sunday night, Portia and I got a call that we're under mandatory evacuation again with most of the community of Montecito", she said during her show.

According to CNBC, the Santa Barbara-based charity, Direct Relief, is providing medicine and medical supplies to the victims of the mudslides.

The reopening of the 101 Freeway in Montecito remained unclear Saturday as crews continued to clear out mud, water and debris from a portion of the highway.

Farrell can be heard shouting to a driver: 'Turn around - the flash flood's right there! Another 17 were still reported missing. But he confessed: "The likelihood is increasing that we'll be finding bodies, not survivors". Another, who lost her life at her home, was a ballerina turned real-estate agent known in some quarters of this enclave for the wealthy and famous as "The First Lady of Luxury Real Estate".
