Ellen blames climate change for relentless string of powerful storms that have battered California for more than a week, Montecito evacuated

Ellen DeGeneres braved treacherous conditions outside her home in Montecito, California to show the ‘unprecedented rain’ the town is being hammered with on Monday night.

Wearing just a gray sweatshirt, the comedian showed how a creek next to her home was raging during the powerful storm — blaming it on climate change.
