Santa Barbara County not expecting evacuations for next rain

Posted: Updated:

More rain is expected in Southern California this weekend, but Santa Barbara County authorities say it's not expected to create debris flows like those that devastated Montecito during a January storm.
    
An advisory from the county's Office of Emergency Management says evacuations are currently not anticipated but residents should remain vigilant.
    
When a storm approached last week, the county ordered evacuations for parts of Montecito and four other communities near wildfire burn areas but the runoff did not cause any problems.
    
The Jan. 9 storm unleashed massive debris flows from a huge burn scar above Montecito. Hundreds of homes were destroyed or damaged. Twenty-one people were killed and two remain missing.
