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.
Rescue workers searched through debris for survivors after tons of mud, trees and boulders swept away homes in Southern California this week, killing 17 people.
Search parties fanned out across areas of Southern California hit hard by torrential rains and mud slides, hoping to find up to eight people still unaccounted for.
