John Corbani -John jonesdds-Jeff ctvoigts - Chris Way2fast - Sam mikeyr - Mike Plus all of our other Santa Barbara/Montecito friends! Here we go again. How are you all doing? From the sounds of it, those who live in the Montecito area may not be on board right now. Immediate evacuations are underway. Winds out of the north at 30-50 sustained with gusts to 70 near the fire directly above Montecito; 15 mph downtown. I'm not sure, but I believe John lives near Westmont College...which is currently evacuating its students to their gym. All of Mountain Drive...the northernmost E/W road above the two cities...has been given the order to evac. Fire has just jumped Mountain Drive & is burning towards Coyote Road. This fire has been burning for just over an hour and has rapidly grown. According to the local SBA news, there is "grave danger" in the Montecito area. Two new starts just reported. The embers are blowing southward & are igniting dry brush, trees, foliage. Traffic jams on all roads leaving Montecito. KEYT Channel 3 has the coverage. I know we all send our best wishes and prayers for your safety and the protection of your property. Please check in when you have the opportunity. Godspeed, Coop MODS: I also posted this in the 206/246 section to get max coverage; we have quite a few Dino owners who live in the Santa Barbara/Montecito area and are well known in both forums.
