Evacuations lifted for Santa Barbara coast

Evacuations lifted for Santa Barbara coast

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. Those in the mandatory evacuation area must relocate by 8 p.m. tonight.

Mandatory storm evacuation orders were lifted Tuesday morning for areas burned in Santa Barbara County's fires.

An evacuation center had been opened at the Goleta Valley Community Center at 5679 Hollister Ave.in Goleta.

Most of the rain from this storm is expected to fall on Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.

That amount of rainfall was downgraded by late morning, and a flash flood watch for recent burn areas was canceled shortly after 10 a.m.




The storm could produce rainfall rates of 0.7 inches per hour, forecasters said, above the threshold of a 1/2-inch at which debris flows are possible below burn areas.

"Please do not wait for someone to come to your door and contact you in person to tell you to leave", county Sheriff Bill Brown said during a news conference Monday.

The county ordered evacuations for both areas during the March 2 storm, but made a decision to issue mandatory evacuation orders only for the extreme risk areas - which are closer to creeks and other water courses - for the Tuesday morning storm.

The incoming storm also prompted voluntary evacuations for neighborhoods in Matilija Canyon and the North Fork area, north of Ojai in Ventura County.
