Evacuations warnings will be lifted at noon Saturday for Summerland and Carpinteria, according to Incident Commanders overseeing the Montecito flooding response.
The affected areas are south of Highway 192/Foothill Road between Ortega Ridge Road and the Santa Barbara County line to the east; and areas north of Highway 192/Foothill Road east of Toro Canyon Road.
Officials cautioned that “returning to a damaged or destroyed neighborhood is a traumatic occurrence, and you may feel overwhelmed by the many tasks ahead. Remember that self-care is the vital first step for you to remain healthy and resilient.”
A boil water order is still in effect for customers of the Montecito Water District, which includes Summerland. Directions on how to boil or disinfect water: http://www.montecitowater.com
