"There are 43 people now who may be considered as missing", Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told reporters at a Thursday afternoon press conference.

On January 9, 2018, rain began falling in Montecito, California. Sadly, more than a dozen people have tragically lost their lives.

Oprah Winfrey's home was among the many damaged by the Southern California flash floods and mudslides that resulted in at least a dozen fatalities.

This would be the first time since 2011 that all the sectors in the S&P 500 posted sales and profit growth for the same quarter. The Nasdaq composite also hit a record high, as shares of Apple gained 0.4 percent.

"It looked like a World War I battlefield".

Most of the deaths are believed to have occurred in Montecito, a "wealthy enclave that is home to such celebrities as Oprah Winfrey, Rob Lowe and Ellen DeGeneres", The Guardian says. "It was literally a carpet of mud and debris everywhere, with huge boulders, rocks, downed trees, power lines, wrecked cars".

But the wooded hillsides that once gave their estates a sense of seclusion were largely denuded by last year's historic wildfires, setting the stage for the massive slides that slammed into homes, turned highways into raging rivers and shredded cars into almost unrecognizable tangles of metal after heavy Tuesday rains.

The December wildfires burned away hectares of brush and vegetation that normally would have soaked up heavy rainfall in the hills north of Los Angeles. The mud was reported to be up to 5 feet deep in places. "About 100 homes were destroyed and 300 others were damaged, according to Santa Barbara County fire officials", KABC 7 reported on Wednesday, noting that 500 search-and-rescue workers and 10 dogs were involved in the search for survivors. It includes four individuals from San Diego Fire-Rescue Department: a task force leader, search team manager, logistics manager and two canine search specialists.

The Santa Barbara Humane Society is helping provide emergency shelter and food for domestic animals of people who had to evacuate their homes, according to their Facebook page.

"It goes without saying how incredibly devastating this time is for their loved ones", Brown said.
