Anxious family members awaited word on loved ones Wednesday as rescue crews searched grimy debris and ruins for more than a dozen people missing after mudslides in Southern California destroyed an estimated 100 houses, swept cars to the beach and left at least 17 victims dead.

A statement said: "The Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office is asking for the community's help in locating several missing persons related to the January 9, 2018 storm incident".

The drenching storm that triggered the disaster gave way to sunny skies, as hundreds of searchers carefully combed a messy landscape strewn with hazards.

Much of the community remains under mandatory evacuation orders. "The mud is acting like a candy shell on ice cream". "To get people here takes time and we're finally getting that request for influx". The muddy debris also lead to roads closing. They used long-handled tools to search the muck in the painstaking task.

Red Cross officials said about 30 people stayed on cots at the shelter in Santa Barbara on Wednesday night and there was plenty of space remaining for Thursday evening as needed. "There's been plenty of cases where they've found people a week after", Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesman Mike Eliason said.

"Most injuries we saw were related to fast-moving debris", Wilson said. "When those go down, you have to leave".

A further eight commercial buildings were destroyed while 20 others were damaged.

According to the Santa Barbara County Coroner's Office, these are the names of those killed this week when heavy rain unleashed flash floods, mudslides and debris flow in the southern part of the state.
