Mangled car, destroyed homes show mudslide devastation

Heavy rains sent mudslides rolling down hillsides in Santa Barbara County on Tuesday, leaving more than a dozen dead.

The storm uprooted trees and homes, and left mangled cars on the streets in Montecito and elsewhere.

Hundreds of first responders in Santa Barbara County waded through waist-high mud while others flew over the devastation searching for survivors. As floodwaters receded, residents walked on streets blanketed by mud.
