MONSTER STORM: Here’s what you need to know

The National Weather Service is calling Friday’s storm the largest in six years.

Our First Alert Weather team is calling for several inches of rainfall in areas throughout Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Ventura Counties. With Santa Barbara and Ventura seeing the most moisture.

The city of Santa Barbara could see more than three inches of rain, Ventura upwards of 4 inches and in Ojai more than six inches of rain is expected, according to the national weather service.

San Luis Obispo County now included in the Flood Advisory. That means flooded roads, intersections and pooling of water on highways is possible.

All of Santa Barbara County is included in a Flash Flood Watch, including the Canyon Fire burn area. If you live in Santa Barbara or Ventura Counties be on alert, especially in the burn areas and flood prone areas.

One area being closely watched is Camarillo Springs. Although it has been several years since the Springs Fire the community remains under the threat of mud and debris flows. Home owners there are under an active voluntary evacuation order from the Ventura County Office of Emergency Services.

The First Alert Weather Center says along with lots of rain we will see wild winds. Damaging winds forecasted with gusts up to 70 mph.

Hazardous conditions include: Flash flooding and debris flows, flooded creeks/stream/rivers, urban roadway flooding, damaging winds and large waves.
