Red Flag Warning Issued For South Coast

Sep 7, 2019

A Red Flag warning has been issued for high brush fire potential for the South Coast.

The National Weather Service issued the warning for 2 p.m. Saturday, to 9 a.m. Sunday.  There's concern that sundowner winds could falre up, and humidity could drop below 20%, creating a dangerous threat.

Santa Barbara County firefighters say they already beefed up preparedness by calling in some state firefighters as backups on Friday.

Santa Barbara County officials say while it wasn't necessary to do a Public Safety Power Shutoff Friday, the potential for that type of precautionary action exists this weekend.
