Ellen DeGeneres is speaking out about the catastrophic conditions in her neighborhood of Montecito, Calif.
The daytime TV host told viewers about the recent torrential rainfall, which caused flash flooding and deadly mudslides, during her show on Thursday (January 11).
The damage comes only a few weeks after the same community battled the largest wildfire in California history.
Ellen also checked in with her neighbor on the ground, Oprah Winfrey, who provided an update on the current situation in Montecito with the help of firefighters.
“We’re going to do what we do. We’re going to come together and we’re going to do what great Americans do all the time. We’re going to help each other. We’re going to help each other out wherever needed,” Oprah said.
