Man captures mudslide happening outside home

A man has captured the dramatic moment a flash flood hit his home in California as the state endured intense storms and mudslides.

At the beginning of the clip, Farrell is seen yelling at a auto driving up the street, telling the driver turn around because the flash flood is right in front of them.

Once inside the house, Farrell starts walking around securing the home, and ordering his 71-year-old mom Gabrielle to wake up his dad, 81-year-old Olympian Jeff Farrell.

Remarkable footage shows Marco Farrell standing outside his Montecito home on Tuesday as a combination of mud, water and debris cascades down the road.

Rescuers frantically combed the mountains of mud, wreckage and boulders which landed on top of the affluent seaside community on Wednesday.

The Santa Barbara County Fire Department reported that 100 homes were destroyed by deadly storms that caused mudslides.

Farrell had to run inside his parents house to warn them that mud was coming down the street.

Their three-legged dog Lucas also survived after the family propped him up on an empty TV box.

'The scariest thing was the sound, ' Farrell said. 'It sounded like the scariest monster you ever heard, banging on your door'.

Looking back, Farrell says he regrets not evacuating his parents. Mangled vehicle, destroyed homes show mudslide devastationHe and his family were eventually able to get to safety. "I don't know how I got lulled".
