Storm Impacts Highway 101, Creates Concern In South Coast Burn Areas

Posted on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 7:43am


Another El Nino fueled storm is hitting the Central and South Coasts today.

The latest storm could potentially bring rainfall totals higher than yesterday’s for the Central Coast and South Coasts.

A voluntary evacuation order has once again been issued for hundreds of homes in the Camarillo Springs area.  That’s the area which was hard hit by mudslides in 2014, which destroyed or damaged 10 homes.

This storm won’t move through the region as quickly as yesterday’s, and could linger into the overnight hours.  We could see one to three inches of rainfall.

A flash flood warning is in effect from 8 to 11 a.m. for the Solimar burn area, in Ventura County.

Yesterday, rainfall in the region ranged from a half inch to more than two and a half inches.  It caused some localized street flooding, and contributed to some traffic accidents.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco takes us to two spots where the storm created special concerns.
