COUNTY CONCLUDES READINESS UPDATES AS STORM CONTINUES TO WEAKEN

Storm Presents Little to No Threat of Flash Flooding or Debris Flows

The County, emergency agencies and the National Weather Service have continued to monitor the storm system passing through the area.  Rainfall measurement over the last 24 hours did not exceed the thresholds necessary for evacuations and predications are they will not.  Rob Lewin, Director of the Santa Barbara County Emergency Operation Center states that “rain resulted in a range of a few sprinkles to .08 of an inch in higher elevations.”  National Weather Service reports the expected storm system to continue to diminish throughout the day and week with little to no threat of flash flooding or debris flows at this time.

The County of Santa Barbara thanks the community for staying alert and connected. To register to receive emergency alerts through the countywide Aware and Prepare system and to access storm readiness information, please visit the Ready Santa Barbara County website at http://readysbc.org/.
