California mudslide death toll rises to 19, with 5 people still missing

At least 18 people have died, and that number is expected to rise. They include a couple who fell in love with their Montecito community, a family of Mexican immigrants and a college student and her dad, a doctor.

More than 1,200 personnel were assigned to the mudslide area in Montecito as of Friday morning, almost double the amount that was assigned only a day prior. Later in the day, however, the sheriff said the number was at 43, combining missing persons reports filed with law enforcement and also inquiries by people who hadn't been able to contact family members or friends.

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said residents who had stayed behind or tried to check on damage in neighborhoods where homes were leveled and car-size boulders and trees blocked roads and littered properties were hindering the recovery effort. Her company confirmed her death in a statement posted Wednesday night, January 10, 2018, on Facebook. One firefighter was killed in the Southern California fires in December. "In so many ways she was so handsome", Brewer said.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office this week identified the 18 killed, citing the cause of death as multiple traumatic injuries resulting from flash floods with mudslides. Although the median home value in Montecito is $3.3 million, not everyone who lives here is wealthy.

Ramos, a stay-at-home mom, was sleeping in her bed along with her daughter Kaelly Benitez when mud crashed through their rental home. "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".

Jonathan Benitez, 10, was Ramos' nephew, the Washington Post said.

In one of the hardest hit areas, a silver Mercedes-Benz, its front and rear fenders completely destroyed, sat atop a tree stump, the only thing left where a home once Saturday. A "deep rumbling" sound followed by massive mountains of mud awakened residents early Tuesday when the slides hit.

"I can tell you one of the biggest things people can do to help is to treat us like a wonderful place to be, because it is". ROY ROHTER, 84:Rohter founded St. Augustine Academy in Ventura in 1994 and was described as a man dedicated to his Catholic faith and to helping others. She returned to her hometown of Los Angeles in 1979, where she began selling high-end real estate on the city's west side.

As their names and those of 14 other victims were released Thursday, crews kept digging through the muck and rubble looking for more people.

The body of Morgan Christine Corey was found Saturday. Her 12-year-old sister, Sawyer, had been found dead earlier.

The former professional ballerina was known as the first lady of luxury real estate, KEYT reported. The victims range in age from 3 years old to 89; all were residents of Montecito.
