The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office issued a Debris Flow Evacuation Warning because of the storm moving through the Central and South Coasts. It includes the area between Patterson Avenue and Ontare Road, between the 3300 and 3500 block of State Street down through Las Positas Road, and south of East Camino Cielo to the ocean.
Public safety officials say there's a risk for potential debris flows in and below the Cave Fire burn area.
National Weather Service meteorologists say isolated thunderstorms could increase rainfall intensity. Residents are being urged to be prepared to leave, and to self evacuate if they feel unsafe.
