    The news just keeps getting worserer and worserer:

    Worserer and worserer. Thirty square miles of Montecito have been deluged with mud and boulders and dozens of homes have been destroyed. The death toll is now 15. Twenty-five people have been injured and 24 others, including a nurse who was swept away in the mudslides, are missing and unaccounted for. Helicopter crews have been rescuing people in areas which are inaccessible because of mud and downed trees. One of the rescues was a 14-year-old girl who had spent several hours trapped in the rubble of a collapsed house. At least the Thomas fire is finally out.

    I'll say it again: The news just keeps getting worserer and worserer.

    Montecito mudslide dead includes 4 children; search continues for more victims
    At least eight people remain unaccounted for following Tuesday’s massive mud flow which killed at least 17 people and obliterated scores of homes.

    The latest numbers on the massive Montecito mudslides: Twenty people dead, four still missing, 65 homes destroyed and 2,500 homes damaged. The section of Highway 101 that goes through Montecito is still flooded and strewn with boulders, downed trees and mangled vehicles. Caltrans crews are working in 12-hour shifts to remove the water and debris but they can not say when the highway might reopen.

    I saw on the news that a man who owns a little cafe and wine and cheese shop in Montecito has been giving free food to all the rescue workers and the residents who are stranded. That is a very generous thing to do and it is nice to know there are still some good people in America.
