Brojne zvijezde uključujući Oprah Winfrey i tenisku legendu Jimmyja Connorsa pogođene su poplavom i klizištima na jugu Kalifornije koje su dosad odnijele 17 života, a još 17 ljudi vode se kao nestali.

Većina je smrtno stradala u Montecitu, bogatom naselju u kojem živi oko 9000 stanovnika sjeverozapadno od Los Anglesa, a koja je dom slavnima poput Winfrey, Roba Lowea i Ellen DeGeneres.

Blatne bujice ušle su u kuće, pokrile autoceste i nosile automobile...

- Kakav dan! Molim za sve u Santa Barbari. Probudila sam se i ugledala požar, a onda sam krenula pogledati koliko je blato u mom dvorištu. Helikopteri spašavaju susjede i traže nestale - napisala je, pa dodala kako njezino imanje nije uništeno.

- Hvala svima na molitvama i što se brinete. Moje imanje je ok. Ima nešto blata i nastala je manja šteta, no to nije ništa na prema onome kroz što moji susjedi prolaze - istaknula je.

 

 

Bivša teniska zvijezda Connors na Twitteru je napisao kako je evakuiran helikopterom iz svoje kuće.

- Montecito - požari, kiša, klizišta i uništenje - evakuiran sam danas helikopterom - mislim i molim se za sve - napisao je.

Među nestalima su sestre Morgan Corey (25) i Sawyer Corey (12) koje su spavale u svom domu zajedno sa Sawyerinom sestrom blizankom i njihovom majkom Carie Baker kada ih je odnijela blatna bujica.
