Rescuers search for victims as California mudslide toll hits 17
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, science
Rescuers used dogs and helicopters to search for victims on Wednesday of powerful mudslides which left at least 17 people dead in a southern California community that is also home to major celebrities including Oprah Winfrey. Heavy rains on Tuesday sent rivers of waist-high mud and debris flowing from the hills into Montecito and other towns in Santa Barbara County northwest of Los Angeles, which are still recovering from last month's ferocious wildfires. At least 28 people were injured, authorities said, while 30,000 remained subject to mandatory evacuation orders. read more
