BREAKING NEWS - Massive evacuations in California. Fear of floods and mudslides

South California – The fear of mudslides in the regions charred by wildfires is extremely high. So thousands of Southern Californians were ordered to evacuate, avoiding that heavy rainfall could be dangerous and hit population.

The great wildfires, including several blazes last year, have burned acres of protective brush on hillsides, leaving little to no vegetation to prevent mudslides and debris flow.

In Santa Barbara County, more than 6,000 people were under mandatory evacuation orders, including residents in parts of Carpinteria, Montecito and Goleta, located below areas scorched by the wildfires over the past year and a half.
