California mudslide: 'Window closing' for missing as death toll rises to 18

Their ages range from 2 to 53.

"We have a yard to redo and hopefully our insurance will help out with that, but the people across from me, newer homes, gone", said local artist Garrett Speirs, 54.

The list of five remaining missing people includes Fabiola Benitez, the mother of Jonathan Benitez, a 10-year-old killed in the flooding. Victor's 2-year-old son survived.

The Benitez brothers are gardeners. "Rebecca was an exceptional woman, and her legacy will continue to live on and thrive through her children, Robert and Julia, her husband Ken Grand, and her namesake firm, Riskin Partners".

"I've been seeing the reports of people watching the vehicle just wash away with the mud, so it's fast moving, it's different and the clean up process as well, so I'm happy to be out there and to serve and see how the Red Cross responds to this type of disaster", Archangelo said.

Authorities announced Thursday that 73-year-old Peter Fleurat was among those who died in Montecito.

The huge wildfire that led to this week's devastating debris flows in Montecito, California, is finally 100 percent contained.

Also, it has an estimated price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 22.76 and a trailing 12-month price-earnings (P/E) multiple of 39.32. It increased, as 42 investors sold EXPE shares while 152 reduced holdings. 35 funds opened positions while 129 raised stakes.

Five people are still missing after the mudslides, according to an update on the County of Santa Barbara's website, which warned people to "anticipate the numbers of missing persons to fluctuate significantly".

As the rainwater rushed downhill with gathering force, it prised boulders from the ground and picked up trees and other debris that flattened homes, cars and carried at least one body a mile away.

The Thomas fire was the largest wildfire in recorded California history.

The hard search goes on in Montecito, California, five days after storm-spawned mudslides roared down from fire-stripped hillsides and smashed through dozens of homes, killing at least 18 people and leaving others missing. Santa Barbara County spokeswoman Amber Anderson told reporters some 1,250 emergency workers were at work Friday, slogging through soupy mud and uncertain footing to search for anyone who is trapped.

"The missing persons were reported by family and friends, and resided in areas that were heavily damaged during the storm and subsequent mudslides", the sheriff's office said.

Peerawat Sutthithepa, 6, who was called Pasta, loved trains, the Los Angeles Times reported, citing family friend Kevin Touly.

The oldest victim was Jim Mitchell, who had celebrated his 89th birthday the day before. The school's headmaster, Michael Van Hecke, a friend of Rohter for more than 25 years, said: "Roy's life has been in service to his good, loving and ever-forgiving God". "He has done so much for so many people and pro-life and Catholic education causes. It just exhausts the crews out there", Sacramento Fire Department Captain Pat Costamagna said in a social media video from the governor's emergency management office.
