The area they are most concerned with (though there are others) is Montecito where new flood plains
began last January caused by fire and rain coming in too close to one another. Now there is a flood
plain with 75% of the rocks and mud exposed which can come down through the hills to the sea
 during the next 5 to 10 years during
rains beyond a certain intensity.
