(Worthy News) - At least 13 people died as a result of heavy rains that triggered flooding and mudslides in fire-ravaged parts of Southern California.
The rainstorm deteriorated south-facing slopes and flooded a creek leading to the ocean sending mud and massive boulders coursing through Montecito neighborhoods recently ravaged by the Thomas fire, Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokesman Mike Eliason said.
In addition to the 13 deaths at least 25 people were injured. Crews rescued 50 people through the air and dozens more by ground. [ Source: UPI (Read More...) ]
