Santa Barbara County Proclaims Local Emergency Over Potential Flooding

Santa Barbara County officials made a local emergency proclamation as a result of the storm.

Monday’s declaration sets the stage for possible state, and federal assistance for flooding. The proclamation says more than 25,000 people are currently affected by mandatory and voluntary evacuation orders in the county.

County Supervisors are expected to formally ratify the declaration when they meet Tuesday.
