California Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a "Day of Remembrance" for the victims of the deadly Montecito mudslides.

The governor ordered Capitol flags to be flown at half-staff Monday.

In addition to the 21 known dead, Brown says the two who remain missing should also be remembered along with survivors who may need help "in rebuilding their lives and spirits."

Montecito was hit by debris-laden flash floods on Jan. 9 when downpours from a storm hit mountain slopes burned bare by the huge Thomas wildfire. Hundreds of homes were damaged or destroyed.
