In addition, the online interactive Debris Flow Risk Map now shows changes to the risk areas from Extreme Risk to High Risk in the city of Carpinteria based on that city's staff analysis.

The mandatory orders will be in effect starting 8 p.m. Monday for areas the county has identified as being at "extreme high risk" for unsafe debris flows, shown in red on the county risk map.

The Santa Barbara County officials lifted all Mandatory Evacuation Orders for Santa Barbara County effective at 10:30 a.m. March 13, 2018. Those areas are at risk of flooding or being cut off from services and utilities, the county said.

Authorities say a storm coming Tuesday is expected to bring rain heavy enough to potentially cause mudslides in the fire-scarred area where debris flows killed more than 20 people earlier this year.

An evacuation center had been opened at the Goleta Valley Community Center at 5679 Hollister Ave.in Goleta.

It's possible more evacuations could be called for this week, as the first of several storms pass over the Santa Barbara coast. Now forecasters anticipate that rainfall between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday could reach rates of.3 to.5 inches per hour, with some potential for short periods of up to.7 inches per hour.

Perhaps the coldest and strongest of the three storms is forecast to hit Southern California Friday through Saturday. Officials recommended evacuations for residents in areas surrounding the mandatory evacuations, the report added.
