'Window closing' to find survivors in USA mudslide

Mudslide damage

"The only words I can really think of to describe what it looked [like] was it looked like a World War I battlefield", Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said of the mudslides. 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.

"Authorities had been bracing for the possibility of catastrophic flooding because of heavy rain in the forecast for the first time in 10 months".

But in the beginning, in cold rain and hours of cold, slimy mud, dead animals, traumatized residents, stood those young women reporters telling us what we didn't want to see or hear. He was also quoted in 2016 as saying he had a branding company connected to the legal marijuana business.

As authorities continue to search for those missing in the deadly Montecito mudslide disaster, officials announced that USA 101 would remain closed indefinitely. The couple had to previously evacuate during the California wildfires.

"Billy and I went down to the house and the whole time we were talking about let's just keep the parents calm to make sure they're aware that we're going to keep them safe", said Coast Guard Petty Officer Aaron Custer. "I'm told there was about 5 feet (1.5 m) of mud". I mean, it was apocalyptic. People who are in their homes waiting to be rescued, they don't know what's happening because there's no power, there's no water. "It was like somebody had brought a chainsaw and started chopping down trees".

She said as her house was positioned on a knoll, she felt secure and that despite being informed she wouldn't have water or gas, she feels grateful. But when it hit his back fence, the flow split in two. An active search and rescue operation is ongoing, officials said.

Winfrey, fresh off a Golden Globes speech that inspired calls for her to run for president, posted Instagram photos of the shin-deep mud in her yard and video of rescue helicopters flying overhead. He says the baby was immediately taken to a hospital.

Canada, US to host meeting on North Korea
If a naval embargo is instituted, Canadian and American warships, along with other vessels, would be moved into the area. As North Korea's biggest trading partner and main source of aid, China holds influence over the pariah state.

Actor Jeff Bridges tweeted that he and his family were affected.

"The Sheriff's Department is continually receiving reports of missing persons and is actively investigating each report", said Anderson.

"We know the area intimately", he said. The victims who died during the storm and mudflows early Tuesday range in age from 3 to 89.

The number of missing persons has fluctuated since the disaster hit early Tuesday morning and had been as low as 16 on Wednesday evening. "That is why we have the canines to help us assist in those efforts to either sniff out or guide us to areas potentially that could have other people that need assistance and rescue".

Hundreds of people have already been rescued, many of whom had to be hoisted out of the mud-filled area by aircraft, officials said.

The sheriff's office also expanded the evacuation zone in the Montecito area on Thursday, as traffic on the already-clogged roads is hindering efforts by rescue and fix crews to access the devastation.
