"In addition to what's going on in Montecito, I lost my dad this week", DeGeneres began in the video. I never had a vaccination.

California authorities say 100 single-family homes were destroyed in the flash-floods that struck Montecito and adjacent areas of Santa Barbara County.

"It wasn't until I put my boots on and I went outside walking and I realized that everything wasn't indeed fine", she said.

Ellen shared the sad news with the audiences and also a few things about her father.

On her talk show, DeGeneres said that the picturesque town of 9,000 is a "tight-knit" community.

"He lived his life exactly how he wanted", DeGeneres said during the show. "It's filled with a lot of different types of people form all backgrounds and there are families missing". I love the picture of the rainbow. The deadly situation forced her and wife Portia de Rossi to evacuate from their home - just weeks after they were able to return following a mandatory evacuation caused by the record-breaking wildfires. People are still missing, with rescue workers are holding out hope that these missing could survive in the mud, which is as thick as 10 feet in some places.

"We were expecting rain this week and usually we're grateful for rain, especially in California, but not after the largest fire in the history of California", she said. Our hearts are with Ellen and her family. "Who would've expected we would have had this devastation again with the mudslides, and so soon", Winfrey said.

"We came to this lot, to the Warner Bros. lot, and took the tour and went around". We're going to help each other. "We're going to help each other out wherever needed", she shared about how to move forward from the natural disaster.
