"We've gotten multiple reports of rescuers falling through manholes that were covered with mud, swimming pools that were covered up with mud", said Anthony Buzzerio, a Los Angeles County fire battalion chief.

The mudslide was another hard turn for those living in the town that has been subject to repeated evacuation orders in recent weeks, first because of the monster Thomas Fire last month, then because of downpours and mudslides.

The mudslides were caused when heavy rain dumped half an inch of water on Montecito in five minutes, while nearby Carpinteria received almost an inch in 15 minutes.

During the wildfires last month, Farell looked over the house while his parents evacuated. There were just signs everywhere that said thank you and grateful just everywhere saying thank you to the firefighters and first responders. "You never know exactly what the human body is capable of".

Revealing there are still families missing from the "tight-knit" neighborhood, the daytime host made sure to note the community is "filled with a lot of different types of people from all backgrounds" who aren't all wealthy A-listers.

"I work in L.A., but I consider Montecito my home", she said.

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. "They're finding people and bodies", she later added, at times pausing to take a breath. "It is beyond recognizable".

"I was walking down here and all of my neighbors' homes are gutted".

Trashed areas were awash in a sea of mud, with only the tallest trees standing and some homes buried up to their roofs. "It's as devastating as can be".
