Oldest Mudslide Victim Had Just Turned 89

Victor's 2-year-old son survived, but his wife, Fabiola, was still missing Friday.

Jim, who worked in labor relations, and Alice, a schoolteacher, had raised their two children in Southern California's Orange County before moving to Montecito in 1995 after retiring.

"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.

Their daughter Kelly Weimer last spoke to them on Monday when she called to wish her father a happy birthday.

The couple had planned to stay in the night of the storm and have a quiet dinner.

It could take days or even longer before the work is finished.

Troy lives with her sister and brother-in-law, who, like her, were ready to leave but then decided against it.

Sodden hillsides gave way, unleashing a torrent of mud, water, uprooted trees and boulders onto the valley below and causing what the police described as "traumatic injuries" to the victims, who ranged in age from 3 to 89.

Conte said Riskin, who was the maid of honor at her wedding, took joy in pairing the flawless home with the ideal family and loved cooking, going for long walks and spending movie nights with her family.

Several news accounts said that a mudslide swept Roy Rohter, who founded St. Augustine Academy in Ventura, and his wife, Theresa, from their home in Montecito early January 9. Company spokeswoman Erin Lammers said Riskin was a ballerina with the American Ballet Theater in NY before an injury cut short her dancing career.

She says Marilyn Ramos doted on her only child, Kailly.

Their home sustained no major damage.

In its first hours, it far surpassed its goal of $20,000. The raging water and mud swamped homes, businesses and destroyed vehicles.

There were firefighters on her street, and they told Troy to wait inside while they evacuated the elderly and infirm from the neighborhood.

Mark Montgomery was a member of the Santa Barbara College Hospital medical staff. Hospital spokeswoman Maria Zarte says Montgomery was an orthopedic surgeon with a subspecialty in hand surgery.

Montecito alone saw heavy rainfall in a short amount of time. "We certainly are searching for a miracle right now", Brown said Thursday.

Unfortunately, there was no place to go.

"The winds were just insane".

"It was a woman's body", she said.

Weinert's house was somehow spared but one of his neighbors, Riskin, was swept to her death. "Montecito needs your love and support".

The mudslides, which came in the early morning hours of Tuesday, killed at least 18 people and destroyed dozens of homes.

"We were all exhausted of it", he said.

"It didn't make sense", she said. "She was just simply the most loving, cheerful, beautiful, strong, independent force".

Hundreds of searchers are still hunting for survivors of the flash flooding and mudslides near Santa Barbara, California.

Mr Brown also named the five people still missing, which included Fabiola Benitez, the mother of Jonathan Benitez, a 10-year-old killed in the flooding.

"There are areas that will take you up to your waist".

Mud and debris near businesses on Coast Village Road. "It's nearly like being blindfolded and poking around in the dark".

Santa Barbara County authorities said Thursday afternoon up to 43 people are missing as a result of the mudslides this week in the Montecito area. The fire started more than a month ago.

"I was frozen yesterday morning thinking, 'This is a million times worse than that fire ever was'".

Richard Taylor, a retired English professor, and his 6-year-old stepgrandson, Peerawat Sutthithepa, were also among the dead in Montecito, according to his brother Marshall Taylor. He died at that home, authorities confirmed Thursday. Rohter grew up in Chicago and was a real estate broker for several years before founding St. Augustine Academy. "He's been a deep supporter of the school in every way and a mentor to me personally, to the faculty and to the kids".
