"Direct Relief is committed for as long as it takes to help the Santa Barbara and Montecito community recover from these tragic events".

Cal Fire puts the affected area at 30 square miles.

Sutthithepa, who went by the nickname Pasta, enjoyed trains, family friend Kevin Touly told the Times. After a better damage assessment earlier in the week, a total of 64 homes were destroyed, while 300 to 462 were damaged. "We are teamed up with partner agencies responding to this tragedy and are working 24/7 to make progress toward reopening USA 101 while being cooperative with the search efforts underway".

And rescue teams were still slogging through the mud, hunting for the missing and assessing the damage.

"I flew over the area this morning, and there's about three-quarters to a mile of water", said Capt. Cindy Pontes, of the California Highway Patrol. "Literally. Ran for my life".

From above, thrashed areas of town appeared awash in a sea of mud, with only the tallest trees standing and some homes buried up to their roofs. About a block up from Farrell's home, firefighters were helping Devon Crail and his wife, Tiare, retrieve items from his parents' house.

A mudslide swept Rohter and his wife, Theresa Rohter, out of their home in Montecito.

"For some reason, she opened the front door" and was swept away, Diane Brewer, one of Gower's friends, told CNN. "It's crusty on top but soft underneath, so we're having to be very careful". I'm hoping it's okay. 'I would have preferred for them to leave and in hindsight we should have left.

The disaster was already unfolding when Santa Barbara County officials sent out their first cellphone alert at 3:50 a.m. County emergency manager Jeff Gater said officials decided not to send one sooner out of concern it might not be taken seriously.

Much of the area remained under mandatory evacuation orders, with the sheriff saying the area was "not a safe or convenient place to be right now". "We have to get this debris cleared, and we have to hurry".

Finally, many Montecito residents ignored the initial warnings.

Unfortunately for residents of the wildfire-ravaged strip of California, there is still a threat of more mudslides in the coming days.

"We've gotten multiple reports of rescuers falling through manholes that were covered with mud, swimming pools that were covered up with mud", said Anthony Buzzerio, a Los Angeles County fire battalion chief.

With most utilities out of commission or about to be cut off, staying behind was not really an option for many.

'There was evacuation fatigue from the fire, ' Farrell said.

But when the earth began to move, it was too late. Storm sets record rainfall in CaliforniaThe rate of rainfall in Southern California Tuesday was 18 times more than required to produce debris flow, according to an analysis by ABC News meteorologists.

The fires burned most vegetation, leaving flawless conditions for the latest disaster to unfold.
