Five People Missing After California Mudslides; Thomas Fire Finally Out

Rescuers plan to search several areas for a second time, hoping to find victims in structures previously examined in the immediate aftermath of Tuesday's mudslides.

Some smaller number, which authorities wouldn't give, were actively being investigated as missing people who could be dead under the debris. The death toll went up to 18 Friday afternoon, and the number of missing people in Santa Barbara County was lowered to five.

ROTT: The mudslides have closed roads, including a section of the Pacific Coast Highway. "Not only for the people that have lost their lives and lost their houses, but for all the rescue people who did all this hard work to save these houses and to see their work apparently be lost by this flood and the damage that it's caused".

"But realistically we suspect that we are going to continue to have discovery of people who were killed in this incident".

"We're starting to get to the phase where people are actually calling in and saying, 'If you're looking for me, I'm OK, '" Elms said.

The Bay Area firefighters are among hundreds of rescue workers from around the state searching through mud for victims and survivors. The order covers about 10,000 residents, and officials said it could last "one to two weeks".

Firefighters and utility crews have been working with chain saws and jackhammers, while heavy machinery was used to scoop up mud and rocks around buckled and flattened homes.

"The house is destroyed, but you know, there's just so many others who are less fortunate".
