MONTECITO (KNX1070) - Officials have assesed the rain that fell Tuesday and lifted mandatory evacuation orders in the Santa Barbara area.

Authorities had issued mandatory evacuation orders Tuesday morning for some areas devastated by January's deadly mudslides over worry that heavy rains could bring more debris flows. 

Folks who were told to leave in and around Montecito, Summerland and Carpinteria can breathe easy for now. However, Tuesday’s storm was the first of three systems forecast to move through the area over the next week.
