Ellen DeGeneres is mourning the loss of a beloved family member.
On Jan. 11, DeGeneres revealed on her daytime talk show her father, Elliot DeGeneres has died at the age of 92.
It's been a difficult week for the comedian, as she's also been dealing with the deadly flash floods and mudslides that have been ravaging the Montecito community in California.
On the Wednesday taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she went on FaceTime with her neighbor Oprah, to talk about the terrifying destruction.
"It’s devastating. We’ve lost so many lives and it’s a tiny community and nobody would’ve expected, certainly, I did not, that after we survived the fire and the rain came. Who would’ve expected we have this devastation again with the mudslides, and so soon," Oprah said.
"But we’re going to do what we do. We’re going to come together and we’re going to do what great Americans do all the time. We’re going to help each other. We’re going to help each other out wherever needed," Oprah added.
Unfortunately, this wasn't the only devastating news she had to share.
