Ellen DeGeneres Gives a Scary Update (VIDEO)

A number of celebrities including Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are among the 10,000 people being told to evacuate their homes in Montecito as storms continue to batter the area

Presenter Ellen DeGeneres took to Twitter to show just how bad things were getting in Montecito with over 10,000 people being told to evacuate.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are also among a number of celebrities to have faced evacuation orders due to the threat of mudslides near their home.

Fierce winter storms have pounded the area of California, leaving officials with a great amount of concern for those living in nearby areas.

Other famous faces to be affected included Oprah Winfrey, Adam Levine and George Lucas.

Presenter Ellen shared a video of the horrendous conditions currently.

Ellen is seen with her grey sweater hoody up as she said: “So, Montecito is under complete evacuation. The entire town. This is the five year anniversary from the fire and mudslides that killed so many people and, er, people lost their homes and lives.

“This is crazy that on the five year anniversary we are having unprecedented rain. This creek next to our house never flows ever.”

She continued to urge people to be “nicer to Mother Nature”, saying: “Mother Nature is not happy with us. Stay safe everybody.”

In the storm Ellen referred to, 23 people lost their lives and over 100 homes were destroyed.

The Montecito Fire Department told all surrounding residents on Monday to “Leave Now” after the location was hit with more than eight inches of rain in just 12 hours – and it’s been reported much more is set to hit too.

It’s said that the order affects in the region of 10,000 people. The conditions have led to trees toppling onto roadways, which is making any attempted evacuations a tough task.

Evacuation centers have been reportedly set up for those who can reach them.

Many other users took to Twitter to show the devastation being caused by the storm, with anchor John Palminteri also showing crashing water in an area he says is known to spill over.

In another upload, he shared the official evacuation notice provided by the Santa Barbara County due to the forecasted storms.

  1. “This creek next to our house never flows, ever!” Well, where do you think that creek came from? It apparently has flowed in the past in order to create a “creek” bed; the signs were there. I do feel bad to see that flooding; we in the Midwest have experienced bad flooding in the past, with loss of possessions. It’s a devastating event for anyone who goes through it. Best wishes for them!
