Gigi Hadid is asking the public for "thoughts and prayers" for the city where she grew up.
"My beautiful home town, just after getting through weeks of wild fire, has been hit by a major storm," she tweeted with a photo of Santa Barbara submerged in water. "That 'river' is the 101 freeway," she added, a description of the flooded highway pictured in the aerial shot. "Please keep the families of Santa Barbara in your thoughts and prayers."
The new storm, which has killed seven people as of press time, has greatly impacted one of Gigi's childhood friends and his family — one of whom hasn't been seen.
"My great childhood friend Connor was found washed up, reportedly with broken bones but ok," she wrote in a second tweet. "His mom is also in hospital but his dad is missing. Praying for the McManigal family & love and condolences to all the families who’ve lost in this tragedy."
