Montecito Debris Flow: A Video Tribute to the Emergency Responders

Date: 2018-02-03
Share |


Watch this moving video compilation of images and sounds, including dispatch radio recordings, from mid-January’s devastating and deadly mudslides/debris flows in this cozy, seaside Santa Barbara County (CA) town. “I'm still searching for the right words to explain the heroism that I heard and that I witnessed the past few weeks,” said photographer Zach Warburg. “This compilation gives just a taste of what happened during the Montecito Mudslides. To all the first responders, from dispatchers (who are the very FIRST first responders) to the nurses and doctors in the hospitals and everyone in between, thank you for all that you do.”

(Note: except where otherwise indicated, all photos are by Zack Warburg).
