He died with his wife of more than 50 years, Alice. His father, Pinit Sutthithepa, and 2-year-old sister, Lydia, are among the missing, the county sheriff's office said.

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.

Montecito is home to many Hollywood stars, and they were feeling the pain.

Conte said Riskin, who was the maid of honor at her wedding, took joy in pairing the ideal home with the flawless family and loved cooking, going for long walks and spending movie nights with her family. She had lived in the city for almost 30 years.

The 17 people killed in mudslides in Southern California this week included children ages 3, 6, 10 and 12.

"While we hope it will not, we expect that this number will increase as we continue to look for people who are still missing and unaccounted for", the sheriff said at a press conference on Wednesday.

On Friday, the estimated number of missing people was down to five, after an estimate of 43 on Thursday.

She said: "It's not just a wealthy community, it's filled with a lot of different types of people from all backgrounds.

Liverpool moving on with Coutinho gone
"It was his dream (to move to Barcelona ) and there was a moment when we had to accept that". Oxlade-Chamberlain said that the Reds played good football even when Coutinho did not play.

We have had mandatory evacuations", DeGeneres said. Some rescuers used poles to probe the muck for bodies, while others waded chest-deep in the mire.

An avid ice hockey player who had skated in a game the night before the mudslides, Mark Montgomery's body was found a day after his children, located about a mile from their home.

Geologists and forecasters warned that intense rain could trigger deadly mudslides from the scorched areas.

Forecasters said the maximum rainfall occurred in a 15-minute span starting at 3:30 a.m. near the Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria areas of Santa Barbara County.

A vehicle sits in mud and debris after a mudslide on in Montecito, California. "I am praying and thinking so much for our friends in the hospital and their families that are still missing". Next to some of the devastated areas sat large estates untouched by the torrent, their lawns still green and the landscaping lush. After a better damage assessment earlier in the week, a total of 64 homes were destroyed, while 300 to 462 were damaged.

The video was taken by local Marco Farrell, 45, who was hunkered down with his parents at their home in Montecito. "I screamed at my family and water started coming into the house". "I'm looking out the front window, I think everything's fine, everything's fine, and it wasn't until I put my boots on and went outside walking and I realized everything wasn't indeed fine".

The family rode out the storm unharmed on kitchen counters as the debris smashed through the walls and water swirled around them. She has been informed that she wouldn't have water or gas, but she still feels grateful.
