Footage shows mud and debris barreling through California home

Search-and-rescue dogs are leading the efforts to find the missing in the wake of deadly mudslides that swallowed neighborhoods in Southern California.

Authorities have released the names of 17 people killed by mudslides in California.

The mudslides were caused by heavy rain which sent mud and boulders sliding down the hills stripped of vegetation by the recent wildfires in the area. "It continues as a search and rescue mission". All are residents of Montecito and range in age from 3 to 89.

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.

"Some rescues have been gut-wrenching: firefighters pushed through wait-high mud to reach a 14-year-old girl caked in mud from head to toe", Karson reports.

The mudslides were caused when heavy rain dumped half an inch of water on Montecito in five minutes, while nearby Carpinteria received almost an inch in 15 minutes.

"The partner of one of the people killed in the California mudslides says the victim had just enough time to shout, "'grab onto some wood and don't let go.'" before he was swept to his death.

Video shot by Marco Farrell captured the devastating mudslide cascading down a Montecito road. Her daughter-in-law Sarah Gower confirmed Gower's death in a Facebook post.

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

As of Thursday afternoon, rescuers had located all but eight people still believed to be missing. On Thursday they believed dozens were unaccounted for, but the number was revised down.

These haunting photos show how a mudslide has wrought destruction on a now devastated Californian town.

The number of missing after a California mudslide has fluctuated wildly, due to shifting definitions, the inherent uncertainty that follows a natural disaster, and just plain human error.

The department hesitated to use a cell phone emergency alert system, and they waited until 3:50 a.m. Tuesday to push out the alert, roughly 10 minutes ahead of the worst flooding. "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.

ROTT: The mudslides have closed roads, including a section of the Pacific Coast Highway.

Searchers had checked most of the debris zone for victims and some were doubling back to leave no stone unturned Thursday when a crew ended up in the backyard of Bill Asher, who lost his palatial home and a similar one he was restoring next door.

Forecasters issued flash flood warnings and predicted the cold front with powerful winds could bring several inches of rain. Another 17 were still reported missing.

By Wednesday, some 500 searchers had covered about 75 percent of the inundated area in the search for victims.
