California mudslide victim identified as founder of Catholic school

California mudslide victim identified as founder of Catholic school

At least 17 people are dead - including children ages 3, 6, 10 and 12 - when heavy rain unleashed flash floods, mudslides and debris flow in California this week, according to Santa Barbara County officials.

Her firm, Riskin Partners, credited the former ballerina with having closed more than $2 billion in high-end real estate sales since founding the company in the early 1990s.

David Cantin, 49. The father of Lauren Cantin, the 14-year-old girl whose rescue was one of Tuesday's most dramatic stories. "Massive", she said, sharing a photo of the street in front of her house that was filled with mud-covered debris from fallen trees to boulders.

An estimated 65 homes were destroyed with hundreds of others damaged.

Authorities had eight active missing-person investigations, and an additional 35 people were reported missing by friends and relatives.

She said as her house is positioned on a knoll, she felt secure and that despite being informed she wouldn't have water or gas, she feels grateful. She was a dear friend. But she was exhausted, as were many here after the warnings, the evacuations, the close calls and the worry of recent weeks.

She is survived by a husband and two adult children. A heavy rainfall or flashflood event therefore creates the flawless conditions for Montecito-like events.

"This is the department's highest priority, and we are working in close coordination with incident command to get the job done as safely and quickly as possible".

He's 11-2 in 13 divisional-round games since 2002 and has completed 316 of 509 passes for 3,700 yards and 28 TDs in those games. Against the Chiefs last week , Henry had his best game of the season with 156 yards on the ground and one touchdown.

Firefighters who fought deadly wildfires in the area in December are now searching flattened homes across Santa Barbara County for mudslide survivors. "You can't even see the center divider, and water is still coming down".

Residents lucky enough to be spared reported hearing rumblings just before the onslaught that sounded like an quake but were actually the sound of a deadly, roaring curtain of mud and debris descending upon them powerful enough to propel massive boulders the size of trucks along with it.

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.

Maria Zate, spokeswoman for Cottage Health, said since the mudslides Tuesday, a total of 28 patients have been treated and released or admitted to Cottage hospitals from storm-related injuries. Rescuers warn they are now unlikely to find any remaining survivors.

Brown said sheriff's deputies went door to door in the mandatory evacuation area, knocking on 7,000 doors to tell residents to leave their homes hours before the storm swept through. "They're finding people and bodies and I mean, you hear the word mudslide and you have no idea the impact that it has ..."

A Southern California community, ravaged by the worst wildfire in the state's history just last month, is now digging out from a horrific mudslide.

Another emergency management official told the Los Angeles Times that county officials decided not to use the its push alert system to cellphones earlier out of concern that it might not be taken seriously.

"Everywhere I turned, there was chaos", Montecito resident Shawn Monroe told the Washington Post.
