Rescue efforts continue after deadly storm in California

The search continues for victims of a storm that slammed a California coastal community early yesterday, leaving at least 13 people dead, 25 injured and several more unaccounted for.

Authorities in Santa Barbara County are still looking for dead, injured or trapped people after heavy rains set off a powerful mud flow that swept away dozens of homes - mainly in wealthy Montecito

Flooding has shut down 50 kilometres of Interstate 101, a major coastal freeway between Northern and Southern California.
