Santa Barbara County officials report two people in Montecito have been killed by mudslides. Rescues are underway.
The 101 is completely closed from just north of Ventura to the Santa Barbara city limits. There’ve been evacuations below the Creek Fire burn areas in the northeast San Fernando Valley and the Fish Fire in Duarte.
AirTalk checks in on how different areas ravished by the fires are dealing with the storm.
