Dramatic video posted on Facebook shows just how powerful Saturday’s storm was in some areas.

Cynthi Bacon captured the video as a flash flood swept through part of her property, Rancho La Casita.

The ranch is located off Highway 154 across from Cachuma Lake. The area was affected by the Whittier Fire, which burned 18,430 acres in July 2017.

The video shows trees, rocks, mud, and other debris being washed through the property.

Flash flood just wiped out everything below the house. Be safe people.
