On her show, Ellen FaceTimed Oprah, who is slumming it on her 40-acre property. The mudslides knocked out public utilities such as gas and running water. But do not fret for Oprah, her mansion has 14 bathrooms. She can live there two weeks before every toilet is soiled.
Firefighters on the scene described the devastation to Ellen. The mudslide was a football field wide and plowed through dozens of homes. Oprah’s mansion was spared because it sits on top of a knoll. Rescue efforts continue. People are still missing and firefighters are searching for bodies buried in the mud.
