Montecito Mudslide – Now and Then Jan 9, 2019

It’s been one year since a deadly mudslide devastated the town of Montecito, CA.

More than 20 people were killed and hundreds of homes and businesses were destroyed as a rush of rocks, mud, and water came down the hills above the town through the Thomas Fire burn scar area.
