California Gov. Gavin Newsom has officially declared a state of emergency and confirmed that 12 residents have already died from the floods. It has been five years since the fire and mudslides impacted California and killed 23 people. Ellen spoke about the tragedy in her video as well.
She continued, “This is the 5 year anniversary from the fire and mudslides that killed so many people and people lost their homes, their lives. This is crazy. On the five year anniversary, we’re having unprecedented rain. We need to be nicer to mother nature cause mother nature is not happy with us. Let’s all do our part. Stay safe everybody.”
Other stars such as Oprah, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle live in homes nearby. Montecito is not just home to celebrities but people from all backgrounds. Hoping the weather calms down soon and everyone there stays safe!
