Evacuation Orders Lifted in Santa Barbara & Orange County
As rainlightens throughout the region, mandatory evacuation orders have been lifted in fire burn areas except one neighborhood in Yorba Linda. Shortly after 10:30 a.m., Orange County officials lifted the evacuation orders for the Box Canyon, Brush Canyon and San Antonio neighborhoods. All those are now under voluntary evacuation except for North Fairmont, which remains mandatory as of 1:15 p.m. In Santa Barbara, the evacuation orders from last night have been lifted as well. "This warning will remain in effect until 10:00pm November 26 to coincide with the end of the Flash Flood Watch period issued by the National Weather Service," emergency officials said.
