Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey talk about deadly mudslides

The death toll from a massive debris flow that buried homes and cars under a torrent of mud and boulders has risen to 15 in Montecito, where local personnel and the U.S. Coast Guard are planning to continue rescue operations Wednesday morning. "In so many ways she was so attractive", Brewer said. At least 17 people died in the mudflows, and over 100 homes in Montecito were destroyed (some swept off foundations) in the neighborhood shared by Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGeneres.

They revised the figure down from 48 which they said they initially reported due to a clerical error. It's not just a wealth community.

DeGeneres then thanked the firefighters for all they're doing in the area and for "working tirelessly on our behalf".

According to experts, the mudslide was the result of recent torrential rains.

Sheriff's deputies also knocked on doors in the mandatory evacuation area to warn residents to leave.

The fire erupted December 4 in Ventura County, destroying hundreds of homes before it spread into Santa Barbara County and threatened more communities including Montecito.

More than two dozen people were injured in the mudslides, member station KCLU reports.


Just weeks after the town and much of Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties were ravaged by the Thomas fire, heavy rains brought deadly mudslides.

Brewer said Gower lived passionately, whether she was interacting with children, grandchildren, friends - or strangers. Some mud, and minor damage that pales in comparison to what my neighbours are going through.' Connors told his Twitter followers: 'Montecito - fires burn - rain comes - mudslides and devastation - evacuated today by helicopter - thoughts and prayers for all!' "All of my neighbors' homes are gutted..."

Ellen DeGeneres is known for spreading love on her show, but during Thursday's episode, she asked her fans for some of their good energy. They're finding people and bodies and I mean, you hear the word mudslide and you have no idea the impact that it has, but after the largest fire in California history, it's catastrophic. She saw that the "sky seemed like it was on fire". And I'm trying to weave the vehicle in, you know, two feet of mud to get back in the driveway and down the street. "We are heartbroken over the loss of lives in our community".

Tom Oschner, who had come to check on the remains of his sister's house said the destruction was devastating.

"But we're going to do what we do". We're going to help each other.

She remained, however, incredibly positive, adding, "We're going to come together and we're going to do what great Americans do all the time".

"We need that number to effectively meet our objectives", said Amber Anderson, a spokesman for the multi-agency response team.
