Back in the United States, in California, thousands of people gathered on Sunday night to commemorate the 20 people who have died in the deadly mudslides in Montecito near Santa Barbara. At least three people remain missing, including a 2-year-old girl. The deadly mudslides come after Southern California was ravaged by historic and deadly winter wildfires. Both wildfires and torrential downpours, which triggered the mudslides, have been linked to climate change.
