Severe mudslides in Southern California have left 17 dead, and rescue crews still acid for at slightest 8 some-more people.
The mudslides came on the heels of one of the regions’ misfortune squabble of wildfires in available history, and the two cataclysms, like many processes on the planet, are related. Because the fires charred the landscape around the Montecito area, the miss of foliage on the hills done them inconstant as they got battered with torrential rain.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown told reporters the stage looked like a “a World War One battlefield.”
Mudslides can come suddenly, with little to-no-warning, but the birth of these slides began in early December, with the largest wildfire in California’s history.
