Oprah Is Ankle Deep in Mud as Flood Follows California Fires (Video)
Oprah is among the residents of communities affected by mudslides centered near affluent Montecito, Ca. this week after rainstorms pelted areas already damaged last December by powerful wildfires. And on Tuesday, the mogul honored Sunday at the Golden Globes posted video to her Instagram account showing some of the damage in her neighborhood.
13 people have died, with at least 25 other people injured by the mudslides that began early Tuesday morning. In addition to deaths and property damage, the mudslides also ruptured a gas line and closed part of the 101 freeway.
In her videos, Oprah gave followers a glimpse of what that looked like on the ground. One video showed the fire that erupted from the broken gas line; another showed a helicopter flying overhead looking for survivors; still another showed the damage on Oprah’s property, with mud at-least ankle deep in her back yard.
See the three videos below.
