Heavy rains unleashed destructive rivers of mud and debris in Southern California on Tuesday.

Officials have now confirmed the mudslides have claimed at least 15 lives, while dozens more are missing. 

The slides are the result of a powerful storm hitting the same area recently scarred by the largest wildfire in state history. 

Many homes have been completely pulverized by fast-moving rocks, trees, and thick mud. Cars have been plucked out of swamps and roads have been closed.
