Storms Lead To Mudslides In Southern California Areas Affected By Wildfires

Family of five rescued from debris of home following California mudslides

In addition to the 100 homes reported destroyed, 300 more were damaged by the mudslides.

More than 50 people have been rescued from rooftops after trees and power lines blocked roads.

Thousands of people in wildfire-affected areas in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles counties were ordered to evacuate on Monday ahead of a winter storm that brought heavy rain to the area.

Numerous locations hardest hit by the torrents had previously been devastated by the worst wildfire in California history, increasing worries about the possibility of mudslides in the freshly burned areas.

Alongside pictures of the mud in her back garden and a video of a helicopter that had been rescuing her neighbours, she said: "What a day! Praying for the survivors and preparing for whatever may come", said Lowe on Twitter. We had helicopters doing hoisting operations to rescue people that we were aware of as well continue to look for people who we are - were unaware of. The Catholic school's headmaster Michael van Hecke said Mr Rohter's wife had been injured in the mudslide.

"First we got burned out at our ranch that caught on fire and now we're flooding, so the last month has been pretty bad", said one resident, Charles Stoops, as he stood in front of his house, which was surrounded in mud almost a metre deep.

The death toll on Tuesday surpassed a California mudslide on January 10, 2005, that killed 10 people as a hillside gave way in the town of La Conchita, less than 20 miles (32 km) south of the latest disaster.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown compared the scene to that of a "World War I battlefield", according to the Times.

The debris and mud flows were first reported along with a house fire before 4 a.m. on the 800 block of Park Hill Avenue, according to Ventura CHP.

This follows last month's wildfires in Southern California, which were intensified by the Santa Ana winds. Amber Anderson, a spokeswoman for the recovery effort, says their top priority is reaching those people, getting them to safety and finding the people who are still missing.
