Search Efforts Continue After California Mudslides Killed At Least 15

Santa Barbara County Fire Search Dog Reilly looks for victims in damaged and destroyed homes in Montecito

"But realistically we suspect that we are going to continue to have discovery of people who were killed in this incident". "There's nearly always more" that could come down, Jibson said.

On land, local, state and federal agencies were conducting simultaneous recovery efforts, the Santa Barbara County Public Works Department said. The mudslides began raindrops on top of hillsides in the Los Padres National Forest and then gained momentum as they tore downhill through the neighborhoods, picking up ash, dirt and debris along the way.

"I came around the house and heard a deep rumbling, an ominous sound that I knew was the boulders moving as the mud was rising", he told the AP. "Why didn't she stay upstairs?"

Among those killed was Josephine "Josie" Gower, 69, an "always cheery" regular at the Read 'N Post, a newsstand and gift shop, said Jan Hendrickson, the store's owner. "Why did she go downstairs?"

Prior to hopping on the phone with Oprah, Ellen, visibly upset during the show, told her audience: "After everything we've been through I think a lot of people thought they were just being overly cautious, but exactly what they feared happened". The two had traveled to Italy for five weeks with Josie's children a year ago.

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.

Actor Rob Lowe took to Instagram on Thursday to slam actress Bella Thorne, who complained on Twitter that the road closures in Santa Barbara, Calif., forced her to miss her boyfriend's concert performance.

Riskin was the founding partner of Riskin Partners, a real estate company that represented buyers and sellers in Montecito, the company's website said. "She's leaving a huge void". She was a dear friend.

The night Oprah received a great honor at the Golden Globes and delivered a powerful speech, she returned home to Montecito, California and faced tragedy for the second time in only a few months.

A grief-stricken son wept for his mother as he searched for her in the Montecito mudslides on Wednesday before being crushed by the news that she had been swept to her death.

The body of Morgan Christine Corey was found Saturday. Company spokeswoman Erin Lammers said Riskin was a ballerina with the American Ballet Theater in NY before an injury cut short her dancing career.

Sutthithepa and Taylor, his stepfather, the Los Angeles Times reported, were killed when the mudslides came through. She moved to Montecito in the early 1990s.

She had two adult children and three grandchildren.

Rohter believed strongly in Catholic education and dedicated his life to helping others, Van Hecke said.

Footage of her being pulled from the rubble of their home swept the media on Tuesday as the scale of the devastation caused by the mudslides became clear. Many people are without power or running water. "Thousands have been blessed by the Rohters' friendship and generosity". At least 28 people were injured and crews performed dozens of rescues.

What has been done so far to help the victims of the mudslides?

Shortly after 4 p.m., officials announced all the southbound freeway ramps in Summerland have been reopened.
