Kourtney Kardashian & Travis Barker’s $15M Santa Barbara beach house devastated by raging storm floods in scary new pics | The Sun

KOURTNEY Kardashian and husband Travis Barker's Santa Barbara beach house is a muddy mess, after days of heavy downpours throughout California.

The newly married couple had only purchased the home a few months ago.

In exclusive photos obtained by The U.S. Sun, the devastation is clear.

The 4 bed, 3.5 bath beach front property showed signs of the water-level reaching above the garage.

The front yard was covered in mud and water, as crews worked to shovel the aftermath away.

The Kardashians stars had just bought the home in October from comedian Conan O'Brien.

They shelled out more than $14 million for the 2,400 square foot property – including two buildings and even an electric charging station.

The home also comes equipped with an outdoor shower and barbeque grill.

The beach house is located in the Santa Barbara suburb of Carpinteria, not far from where Travis, 46, proposed to his now-wife Kourtney, 43.

Carpinteria is home to many other well-known celebrities, and their neighbors include director George Lucas and actors Kevin Costner, Ashton Kutcher, and Mila Kunis.

At least 18 people have died in the violent California storms, as nearly 90 percent of the state was under a flood watch warning.

The storm has brought near-100mph wind gusts and has created impossible travel conditions.

Some evacuations have been ordered, while others haven't waited for the official word and have already headed to higher ground on their own.


Standing outside her home, Ellen DeGeneres gave fans an up close look at the raging floodwaters.

"This creek next door to our house never flows. Ever," she shared while standing outside in a rain parka. "Probably about nine feet up, and it’s going to go another two feet."

The comedian confessed her wife, Portia de Rossi, had begged her to evacuate.

"We need to be nicer to mother nature," Ellen told her followers. "Cause mother nature’s not happy with us."

Online, fans begged her to stay safe, as a rushing mudslide streamed past.

"Wow, so sorry you have to go through that," one person tweeted. "Stay safe."

Another added: "Wishing you lots of luck during these difficult times."

While a third begged: "Please be careful & safe Ellen."

And one person urged her to get out: "I would evacuate.  What is “higher ground” when water is rushing so fast!"


Good Morning America meteorologist Rob Marciano found himself stranded while reporting on the scary weather conditions.

In an Instagram clip, Rob addressed his followers from the news station's van, where he remained with his team while they sought shelter.

"So, we're kind of stranded in Montecito, [California], which there's worse places but on a night like tonight it's pretty bad," the 54-year-old began.

"There's no hotels close by, and the roads are cut off anywhere where there are hotels, so we're going to one of our boss's parents' house to camp out for the night. And the crew is somewhere behind us, so hopefully, they make it," Rob concluded, giggling at the unprecedented situation.

Hours later, the TV star shared a video of the treacherous conditions in the city, with entire roadways blocked off from extreme flooding.
