Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Oprah, Ellen & More Ordered To Evacuate Amid California Storms

A storm is ravaging the coast of California, and evacuation orders are in effect.

Five years to the DAY after the devastating Montecito mudslide, which claimed the life of 23 people and destroyed more than 100 homes, the California town is experiencing another natural disaster. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, as well as Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Gwyneth Paltrow, Adam Levine, and MANY more who call Montecito home were ordered to evacuate Monday in the face of the powerful winter storm. The Montecito Fire Department eerily warned residents on Twitter yesterday to “LEAVE NOW!” before Public Information Officer Scott Safechuck echoed the order. See (below):

In footage (below), you can see how streets have begun to flood, with one citizen even seen kayaking!

In addition to the eight inches of rain that have already fallen, a LOT more is expected, and trees have begun to topple on roadways, making the evacuation even more challenging. Ellen took to Instagram yesterday to show just how powerful the raging waters are, calling it “crazy.” With her home located on higher ground, she was asked to “shelter in place.” See (below):

At the time, it’s unclear whether Prince Harry, Meghan, Oprah, and other celebs have evacuated. The royal has been in New York promoting his memoir, noticeably leaving The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night ahead of the Tuesday airing of their sit-down. Hopefully Meghan didn’t stay behind in Montecito with both kids by herself!

As of now, the storm has already claimed the lives of 12 people over the last 10 days. See more (below):

Our hearts are with the Montecito community during this perilous time. Thoughts? Let us know in the comments down below.
