In California most of the time the community looks forward to the weather calling for rain but not after the largest fire in the history of California.
Ellen DeGeneres lives in the community of Montecito and on Sunday night she got a call that they were under mandatory evacuation again for fear of mudslides.
They were right, the rain caused massive mudslides and the search for missing people became an increasingly desperate Thursday, with much doubts about whether anyone would be found alive.
Seventeen people from ages 3 to 89 were confirmed dead, and eight others were unaccounted for.
The Associated Press shared a video of a man returning to his mudslide damaged home.
Even though the mud in his home is knee high, he says he still sees a “glimmer of hope.”
Oprah Winfrey also lives in Montecito and was affected by the mudslide. The AP uploaded a video to their YouTube page of her describing the damage.
Thursday on the Ellen Show, Ellen FaceTimed Oprah to give fans more of a behind-the-scenes look of their community.
Here at RabbleVID we express our sincere condolences, thoughts, and prayers for those affected and send love and light their way.
