Oprah Winfrey, Meghan Markle, and Prince Harry of the United Kingdom were all asked to leave their homes in Montecito, California, on Monday afternoon due to a severe winter storm that had just slammed the area.
According to Daily Mail, Montecito’s Santa Barbara County residents as a whole were also instructed to remain indoors.
According to California Governor Gavin Newsom, the directives come as the state continues to suffer damage from atmospheric rivers and storms that have left 12 people dead and many others trapped in their houses.
