Cleanup and healing after Montecito mudslides


According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, only 58 of the some 3,200 homes in Montecito have flood insurance. That means many homeowners will either be getting a lawyer to argue the Thomas Fire caused the mudslides and should be covered by fire insurance, or will need to rebuild without insurance. Federal disaster assistance only pays up to $35,000.
