Recent Storms Damage South Coast Creek Area Slated For Improvements

The Lower Mission Creek widening project in Santa Barbara has had a major setback due to the force of recent rain.

Some of the supports broke loose as the runoff waters raged over the weekend.

Even now, there's still debris in and around the creek water and the banks.

The contractor and the city are meeting Tuesday to discuss the project, which was a supposed to finish sometime in March.

Repairs are expected to cost several hundred thousand dollars.

No one was at the site when the destructive rain waters came through.
