This just in, at least thirteen people have died Tuesday, January 9th of 2018. The #1 was reason because there was a rainstorm that sent mud and debris coursing through Montecito neighborhoods. Since mud and debris were coursing through Montecito neighborhoods, rescue crews were extremely busy. Rescue crews had to handle the clogged roads and the downed trees to search for victims. This flood was a devastating occurrence for Santa Paula because the Thomas Fire only occurred a few weeks before. In a matter of minutes, pounding rain had targeted the slopes just above Montecito and a creek that flooded,  was headed towards the ocean. On account  the pounding rain getting heavier, there was mud and boulders heading through neighborhoods. The pounding rains and mudslides not only caused the death of thirteen people, but it also left 25 others injured.

When heavy rain struck at around 2:30 A.M, the number of people dropped,  causing mud flows that were wait high. Although the mud was only wait high, there were about 300 or more people stuck in their homes. Since heavy rains aren’t really a problem most of the time, this time the rain was a huge problem because land had just been burned so that left less soil to absorb the water since everything had been burned. There were many people trying to get out, but unfortunately they  didn’t make it. A man and his child were  trying to get out of this devastating occurrence, sadly they got “eaten” up by all the mud. Rescue crews then found the bodies. People need to call rescue crews if they are in danger, and stay safe if there is mud flows nearby. Stay safe kids.
