Heavy rain bands moved through Southern California on Saturday morning, with Flash Flood Warnings issued for many of the burn scar areas. At times, rain rates were up to 0.5" within five minutes in parts of Santa Barbara County. Mudslides closed down the Pacific Coast Highway in multiple places. We spoke with Caltrans District 7 about the impacts: https://www.facebook.com/WeatherNation/videos/318063615504960/ https://twitter.com/NWSLosAngeles/status/1091731854800105474 There have been numerous reports of flooding and mud/debris flows within the warned areas. https://twitter.com/i/status/1091747850751377408 Parts of the US 101 in and around Santa Barbara were closed due to mud/rocks in the road as well as flooding. Check out this incredible video that shows the extreme power of water. Debris flows knock down more trees as flood waters overwhelmed the landscape. https://twitter.com/WeatherNation/status/1091825743217217539 We will continue to bring you the latest on WeatherNation as the threat continues for parts of Southern California into this afternoon.
