But 62-year-old Delbert Weltzin, who had been previously identified as missing, was "found alive and well", Brown told the AP.

The mudslides, which came in the early morning hours of Tuesday, killed at least 18 people and destroyed dozens of homes. It was so incredibly harrowing", said Brian O'Dea, author of "High: "Confessions of an International Drug Smuggler".

During an episode of her daytime talk show, Ellen shared how the deadly wildfires had forced her and wife Portia de Rossi to evacuate their home in Montecito, a wealthy coastal enclave north-west of Los Angeles. "We are the lucky ones", he said, shaking his head with the knowledge that a single boulder on a different trajectory could have taken out his home.

Weather is good, but forecasters say there's a slight chance of light rain by next Friday. Another system was possible two days later.

The sheriff's office also expanded the evacuation zone in the Montecito area on Thursday, as traffic on the already-clogged roads is hindering efforts by rescue and fix crews to access the devastation. "It was activated at the appropriate time actually when the event was occurring", Brown said. The closure was expected to last until Monday, but after reassessing the damage Friday afternoon, authorities could no longer provide a timeline for when the highway would reopen.

"Water is very powerful", said Amber Anderson, a spokeswoman for Santa Barbara County. The hills are charred and brown, and the streams that carry water to the ocean are swollen.

In the disaster zone, searchers used chain saws and rakes to remove logs and sift through the remnants of what was left of multimillion-dollar homes.

Crews are using backhoes, jackhammers and shovels to look for victims and clear roads.

In one of the worst-hit areas of Montecito, mud blew through doors and windows, filling the interiors of houses with muck and debris. Hundreds of rescuers and dogs still were searching for people Thursday.

Henzgen, the Los Angeles Fire Department captain, pointed to a almost empty lot. Because of the broad reach of the alerts, they said they believed the message would have panicked people who were not in danger and triggered mass evacuations that would have snarled traffic and delayed emergency vehicles.

Each member of his team is given a section and must reduce any piles to ground level.

"But we're going to do what we do". Thankfully her 14-year old daughter was rescued by firefighters on January 9th.

The 281,893-acre Thomas Fire, which broke out December 4 in Santa Paula, was brought to 100 percent containment Friday, the U.S. Forest Service said. The freeway was closed between State Route 150 in Carpinteria north to Milpas Street in Santa Barbara.

"We were expecting rain this week and usually we're grateful for rain, especially in California, but not after the largest fire in the history of California".
