California mudslide rescuers expand search area for missing

By Alex Dobuzinskis MONTECITO, Calif. (Reuters) - Rescuers in southern California on Friday looking for as many as 43 people feared dead or trapped by this week's deadly mudslides have expanded the area they are searching and told residents that they might need to stay away for weeks. Walls of mud and debris cascaded down hillsides that were denuded last month by wildfires, including the Thomas Fire, the largest blaze in the state's history. "Realistically we suspect we are going to have the discovery of more people killed in this incident," Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said at a Thursday news briefing, adding that he was hoping to find "miracle" survivors.
