Returning to a damaged or destroyed neighborhood is a traumatic occurrence, and you may feel overwhelmed by the many tasks ahead. Remember that self-care is the vital first step for you to remain healthy and resilient.

Residents should use caution when returning back to their property.

Areas affected by the debris slide continue to be without power and gas.

A boil water order is still in effect for customers of the Montecito Water District, which includes Summerland. Directions on how to boil or disinfect water: http://www.montecitowater.com 

Stay out of the restricted areas and follow the direction of law enforcement when given instruction on entering your area.

Please drive slow and be aware that personnel and heavy equipment are in the area and continue working on the incident.

If S.B.'s bureaucrats were reactive and cared about their citizens they would have announced, last Tuesday already, that all restrictions on short term AirBnB rentals are LIFTED so that displaced family who live, work , have kids in school around S.B. can MORE EASILY find a temporary shelter with as little disruption to their local lives as possible. But noooo : no such action was taken or will be taken !!

Does anyone know if it's possible to walk from Santa Barbara to Carp along the beach? I need to get to Carp tomorrow and I can't really trust Amtrak since their trains have been experiencing long delays. I know there will be lots of debris but I'll have a sturdy pair of boots to wear on the walk. The boat to ventura doesnt do me much good as I'll still need to get to Carp from there (a ticket plus an Uber would cost like $50). I wonder if the authorities would stop me from walking along the beach. I'm not interested in being a looky-loo

Below the high tide mark you can walk to your heart's content as you'd not have any private property restrictions. The concern I have is access around certain points if the tide is not favourable. Though you could walk along the train tracks to go around certain geographical protrusions.
