Droughts, fires, and now that we've finally gotten some much needed rain.........so far, 15 people have died and 24 more are missing in massive mudslides in Southern California.

I feel like these deaths over the mudslides could have been avoided. Actually I read that people did not evacuate when they were told to. When we had the fires in 2015 mudslides were a huge concern the following spring-and they were monitered and precautions were taken for our safety.
I take it some public don't listen to these precautions.

Wow. I didn't know that but I've kinda avoided seeing much coverage of it. I know it happened and I've read a tiny bit but after seeing a grown man cry as he searched for his mother I didn't want to see any more. It's a horror.

If someone told me I was in danger of being in a mudslide I would have moved like my ass was on fire.

I don't want to watch the coverage just so I don't see a body getting pulled outta the mud.

Yeah, I don't doubt that many of the deaths are due to residents ignoring calls to evacuate. Unfortunately, the children, elderly, disabled and pets in the care of those who ignored the warnings didn't have a say in the matter.

It happens with every forcasted natural disaster. Some people get the hell outta dodge when ordered to do so - be it hurricane, fire, blizzard, slides, quakes.... And others choose to stay and try to beat the odds by standing their ground against Mother Nature.
