But within an hour they said they had made a clerical error, and the actual number of missing was eight.

Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. today issued an executive order to further assist recovery efforts in Southern California related to the Thomas Fire and subsequent mudslides.

Rescue crews continued to search for survivors amid the mud and wreckage of Montecito's massive debris field on Thursday, but acknowledged that the window to save lives is rapidly closing.

Seventeen people have died and another 43 are missing after mudslides crushed homes to the north in Santa Barbara County.

"This remains a very active search and rescue mission."In updating the missing figure, Brown said that the precise number could fluctuate significantly".

Fellow Montecito resident Ellen DeGeneres told Winfrey, in a FaceTime conversation during her "Ellen DeGeneres Show" Thursday, that she and wife Portia de Rossi were evacuated from their home Sunday night.

"They were told to shelter until they heard a knock at the door", Crail said. They slogged through ooze and poked long holes into the mud on Wednesday as they searched for victims a day after the massive debris flow passed through.

"It's less than 10,000 people, it has two public schools, family-owned businesses".

"The big hit", he said, "is people can't get up here from L.A".

Stranded drivers caught up in the rising water levels were being plucked from their vehicles to safer, dryer ground by emergency personnel relying on mostly aviation transportation.

Santa Barbara County officials said today that five people are missing, adding that the list is constantly fluctuating. She hoped to find them in a shelter or hospital. On Sunday, some 30,000 people in areas near where the Thomas Fire had burned were either ordered or given a choice to evacuate.

The disaster was already unfolding when Santa Barbara County officials sent out their first cellphone alert at 3:50 a.m. County emergency manager Jeff Gater said officials decided not to send one sooner out of concern it might not be taken seriously.

After a better damage assessment earlier in the week, a total of 64 homes were destroyed, while 300 to 462 were damaged. She then praised the firefighters and her "tight-knit" community. "We plan to continue Rebecca's legacy and love for real estate with the same level of excellence, experience, and service that Rebecca so effortlessly embodied".

The debris field also cut off gas, electricity and water to much of the area.

About 100 homes were destroyed and hundreds of others were severely damaged in the coastal enclave of about 9,000 people northwest of Los Angeles.

DeMille Award recipient showed off the damage to her 65-acre estate from the deadly Montecito mudslides that ravaged her and Ellen DeGeneres' neighborhood in Santa Barbara County, California.

The mud quickly filled his home and mud could be seen splattered against his white walls.

"I looked out my front window and saw my car fly by", he said.
