Search Continues for Missing After Mudslides in California

Jeff Bridges also revealed that his home was impacted by the mudslide, tweeting Thursday that though their home is "severely damaged", he and his family are safe. She says "multiple" residents have been rescued and more are calling for help in Montecito and Carpinteria.

The mudslides and flood waters have also affected land in close proximity to wildfires that raged recently in Southern California, including the Thomas Fire, which has burned 281,893 acres to date. "So again, we evacuated because they feared mudslides", the host said. "It's filled with a lot of different types of people from all backgrounds".

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.

"It just went around the house like a teardrop, it was shaped like an eye", O'Dea said.

Bridges said his house took a hit.

Brown did say that of the 17 people he announced were missing Wednesday, some were identified as among the dead and were crossed off the list. People are trying to locate missing people. At least 28 people were injured and crews performed dozens of rescues.

Oprah then described what happened early Monday morning, just hours after she gave her headline-making speech at the Golden Globes.

Benitez lived with her sister-in-law, Marilyn Ramos, 27, who was asleep with her daughter, Kaelly, three, when mud crashed through their Montecito rental home, carrying both to their deaths. "I'm really flabbergasted to imagine how they're going to survive this rainy season", he said.

Eighteen people have died as a result of the disaster in the wealthy enclave of Montecito, a community about 90 miles up the coast from Los Angeles. "They're finding people and bodies and I mean, you hear the word mudslide and you have no idea the impact that it has. It is beyond recognizable".

"Where I am now, which is the east side of my property, I was walking down here and all of my neighbors' homes are gutted".

Mandatory evacuations have been extended as more than 1200 emergency workers continue to search mud as deep as 4.6m in places.

"I walked out back, you know, where we share a fence line and the neighbours out back they're houses are gone. It's as devastating as can be".

"The dogs were barking, I wake up and I can't believe that the sky seems like it's on fire", Oprah explained.

The U.S. Forest Service announced Friday that the Thomas Fire, the largest wildfire recorded in state history, was officially 100 percent contained, confirmed by aerial surveys of the charred 440-square-mile area. "But we're going to do what we do". "We're gonna come together and we're gonna do what great Americans do all the time and we're gonna help each other". "We hope there's not going to be any more".
