SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. -- The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Santa Barbara County.

Officials say the expected rainfall may trigger shallow mud and debris flow, minor rockfalls and flooding capable of localized damage, especially in steep terrain near burn scars.

Officials warn residents to avoid recent burn areas, low-lying areas, areas with standing water and areas near creeks or streams.

They advise drivers to "turn around and don't drown" when encountering flooded roads.
