Oprah Winfrey Shows Devastation From California Mudslide in Her Own Backyard

Oprah has posted two videos to show some of the devastation of the Southern California mudslides that have left 15 people dead.

Heavy rains caused mudslides in Santa Barbara County and caused mud and debris to flow, destroying homes in the area. CNN is reporting that 300 people are currently trapped in the Romero Canyon area of Montecito due to the devastation.

Oprah gave a first hand look at some of the damage, as it hit her neighborhood and her own backyard.

“What a day! Praying for our community again in Santa Barbara. Woke up to this blazing gas fire. then swipe left to see how deep the mud is in my backyard. Helicopters rescuing my neighbors. Looking for missing persons. 13 lives lost. #Mudslides.,” Oprah posted last night, and added this morning, “Thanks everyone for your prayers and concern. My property is fine.Some mud , and minor damage that pales in comparison to what my neighbors are going thru. #mudslides”
