The Golden Globes victor said she did not realise the scale of the devastation until she put on her boots and waded through the mud in her yard. "I live there, Oprah lives there".

"And there are families missing, there are people who are missing family members.it's catastrophic".

The dead were identified - all from Montecito, ranging in age from 3 to 89 years old.

This undated photo provided by Gina Conte, shows Rebecca Riskin. In a rescue helicopter that was surveying the damage on Wednesday, National Guard Chief Warrant Officer Sean Quillin said the shock and speed of the mudslide had left almost every survivor shaken. It was the first death discovered since Wednesday.

Hours after that posting, authorities confirmed Thursday that Lauren's 49-year-old father, David, was killed. She had lived in the city for almost 30 years. That easily surpassed the goal of $20,000. "Massive", she said, then showing some of the damage to the surrounding areas of her home. Earlier, officials said just eight people were unaccounted for.

She says Marilyn Ramos doted on her only child, Kailly.

And after speaking about the damage with Ventura City County firefighters, the Wrinkle In Time star ended with an uplifting message about how to move forward from the natural disaster.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it will replace the Obama-era carbon and clean water regulations, and open up a national debate on climate change.

"We've got a window that's closing, but we're still very optimistic".

Unfortunately, there was no place to go.

It continued to smolder before a drenching Pacific storm hit bare hills and mountains this week, unleashing debris-laden flash floods that swept away homes and killed at least 17 people. "Trees were cracking. It was scary all right", he said Thursday.

"Where do you go when you're a family of four and you don't have a second house?" "To get people here takes time and we're finally getting that request for influx".

"You're walking around in waist-deep soup", he said of the grueling undertaking. "You just don't even think that this is possible".

Santa Barbara fire Capt. Gary Pitney said the likelihood is increasing that rescue crews will be finding bodies instead of survivors at this point.

The sheriff added that the death toll was likely to increase as rescue operations were still on.

Quirk, meanwhile, planned to keep working at the relief center.

"I don't know where it came from", he said, looking visibly upset.

An urban search and rescue team searches a home that was destroyed by a mudslide on January 11, 2018 in Montecito, California.

Triggered by heavy rains, the massive slides struck before dawn on Tuesday.

"It's just incredible. Seeing pictures doesn't do it justice", she said of the downed trees, flattened houses and mud-saturated streets. Along the way, she called hotels in Santa Barbara to see whether her mother was there.
