Several creeks throughout the Central Coast are gushing with water after Saturday mornings storm swept through San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties.

Santa Margarita Creek behind Ancient Peaks Winery is overflowing with water.

The Pismo State Beach campground is filled with water and a large tree was knocked down by the wind.

The Santa Barbara County Environmental Health Services is reminding people to stay away from storm water.

That water is untreated rain water that flows through the drainage system, into creeks and into the ocean and can increase someone’s risk for certain illnesses if they come in contact with it.

They advise people to stay away from the water for three days after the rain event.
