Authorities say a storm coming Tuesday is expected to bring rain heavy enough to potentially cause mudslides in the fire-scarred area where debris flows killed more than 20 people earlier this year. But those orders were lifted by 10:30 a.m. In addition, the online interactive Debris Flow Risk Map now shows changes to the risk areas from Extreme Risk to High Risk in the city of Carpinteria based on that city's staff analysis. Significant snowfall totals are expected at the higher elevations.
Santa Barbara County officials have created a website called ReadySBC.org, which is a great resource of information for those living in the affected areas, and you can register for alerts and search through lots of other weather related information.More news: Rep.
