A Flash Flood Warning will remain in effect until 6:45 a.m.in areas near the Thomas Fire Burn areas in Montecito, Carpinteria, and Summerland in Santa Barbara County. "We are issuing this Mandatory Evacuation because there is risk to life and property, and disruption of critical services".

"We just don't know how our watershed is going to react to this".

"The decision to evacuate these areas is being made out of an abundance of caution", County Sheriff Bill Brown said during Thursday morning's press conference.

Highway 101 will remain open for evacuations up through the onset of the storm.

The warning, which is one step below a mandatory order, affects about 30,000 people in Santa Barbara County, said Kelly Hoover, a spokeswoman for the county sheriff's office.

Obviously he had to come back down to Earth a bit. "I'll be ready to swing. hack away and turn some double plays". It appears he's doing the same this year for the Yankees , who traded for him February 7.

Rainfall is expected to be heaviest in the early morning hours, and Mr Brown said he wanted to avoid a situation in which people are forced to flee hazard in the middle of the night. A blizzard warning expired in the Sierra Nevada, where forecasters said moderate to heavy snow and howling winds would last through Saturday.

Shortly after 4 a.m., Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies reported water, rocks and debris from Romero Creek coming over the roadway on the 2400 block of Bella Vista Drive.

The storm pressed on across metropolitan Los Angeles, where the National Weather Service said there could be flooding near five wildfire burn areas.

"We want everyone to be out of the area and out of harm's way by nightfall", Mr Brown said. "This is the first storm since the 1/9 Debris Flow and we can't take unnecessary chances. Those with access and functional needs and those with large animals should leave".

The Santa Barbara County evacuations covered residents living near areas burned by three major wildfires over the past 18 months. And considering the devastating mudslides in January, which killed 21 people, "we can not take any unnecessary chances", the sheriff said. It has already gone through Monterey County and is now in the San Luis Obispo area. Those failing to heed the order are advised they are responsible for their own well-being for the duration of the evacuation.
