We kind of thought mudslides were only the things nightmares were made of, but a big one happened in Santa Barbara County earlier this week that claimed the lives of at least 17, and rescuers are still frantically searching for eight missing people. In addition to death, the floodwaters and mudslides resulted in 28 injuries, and 65 homes were damaged or destroyed. Part of a major freeway is also closed down because of the disaster and isn’t expected to reopen until Monday. All of this comes just weeks after the same area was ravaged by the Thomas fire, which caused mass evacuations and more destruction of homes. Can California go back to being paradise, please? These poor people have had enough.
