'Get out of here, go!' Man witnesses moment flash flood hits Montecito

'Get out of here, go!' Man witnesses moment flash flood hits Montecito”

Video shot by Marco Farrell captured the devastating mudslide cascading down a Montecito road.

At the beginning of the clip, the 45-year-old is seen yelling at the driver of a auto going up the street to turn around because a flash flood was coming down the hill. "Oh, my God", Farrell says.

Marco Farrell, recorded the deluge of brown, muddy water come crashing past his home, dragging debris from destroyed houses and cars with it.

'Get ready to go out!

Luckily, Farrell and his parents got out of the flood alive.

Farrell told ABC that he, his parents and their dog took refuge in their hallway filled thigh-high with water for more than an hour as the flood rushed through their home.

All the while, they braced as boulders, logs, and even cars crashed into the house. 'It sounded like the scariest monster you ever heard, banging on your door'. So there was a really emotional moment, ' he said.

But this time, his father, who won two gold medals in swimming at the 1960 Olympics, chose to stay home with his wife.

The sheriff's office tweeted: "Another tough day in Santa Barbara County as Search and Rescue, Fire and Law Enforcement personnel from across our county and our neighboring counties searched for survivors and evacuated people". 'I would have preferred for them to leave and in hindsight we should have left. In the footage, just before the water emerges, he can be heard shouting at a nearby motorist: "The flash flood is right there!"

The mudslides were triggered by heavy rains early on Tuesday and debris flow has destroyed 100 homes in California.
