The new year didn’t start too well, especially for California.  In Montecito, California over 20 people have already lost their lives in a devastating rock slide. It started January 9th and has continued to corrupt the city since then.

In Montecito, California and the area around it, the residents are terrified. They could either stay and risk loosing their lives, or leave and loose their home. This disaster is from the insane wildfires that has happened in the months before. It was caused by strong rain that pored onto the already destroyed area where the fires had occurred. The soil had become hardened from the wild fires, so it repelled water causing debris and rocks to plummet down the large mountain into the town below.

Famous actor, talk show host, and producer Oprah Winfrey recently posted on her Instagram about the incident. She has a house in the city and in the video she shows the area around her house which is totally destroyed. Other celebrities live in that area and are very worried, such as Ellen DeGeneres and Rob Lowe. Sadly, there is no way to stop these mudslides. However, you can try your best to be prepared. Keeping a safe pack with non-parshible food, water, radio, and dry blankets/ clothes. Those can be the difference between life and death. Especially in situations such as this. More information here.
