Rescuers were attempting a rescue of 5 people in an attic on San Leandro Lane, not sure they can get to them right now...Heard someone was attempting a rescue on Hot Springs right now....Also heard there was a body somewhere they could not get to.

Thanks for your fabulous public service today Roger! I've just now posted a bunch of maps and some links on SBitZ.NET including a radar rainfall map. With power out in places, many people will only have smartphone access to information. KEYT just showed miles of cars parked on 101 this morning between here and Ventura. Sure hope they've gotten everyone out of there, because a debris flow there could be a very big problem for all those people.
