Oprah meets with search dogs, checks on neighbors

Posted: Updated:

Oprah Winfrey is using social media to show what life is like in Montecito since the mudslides.

She's been sharing videos of her experiences with people in her neighborhood as part of the recovery process.

On Saturday, she posted a clip in which she interviews search and rescue crews and learns about their specially-trained dogs.

The videos are "no frills" - shot on a phone and uploaded from the disaster zone straight to her fans. It's a far cry from a fancy, multi-million dollar studio with HD cameras and an expensive wardrobe.

Instagram provides Oprah's fans a window into her life they wouldn't normally get. They're seeing a stripped-down version of one of the world's most rich and powerful media icons.

She's cutting right to the heart of the matter and focusing on what's important for her community: sticking together and helping one another in a time of great need.

Earlier this week, Oprah shared videos of the mud on her property and also the fire that erupted from a broken gas main in the immediate aftermath. You can see those videos here:
