The Central Coast saw the biggest waves of the year on Thursday, January 18, 2018 — and they were expected to get even bigger than the ones shown here at Morro Bay Harbor. The big surf was caused by a 967-millibar storm with hurricane-force winds.
Highway 101 near Montecito remains closed, underwater and covered in mud almost a week after the deadly mudslides and floods hit the Santa Barbara County town. Caltrans continues to work to cleanup the highway; as of Monday, January 15, 2018, crews hoped to have the road open the week of Jan. 22.
A large convoy of septic trucks, big rigs and motorcycles snaked their way up Highway 101 from Santa Maria to Morro Bay on Saturday, January 13, 2018, in honor on Al Beavers, owner of Al's Septic Pumping Service. He died Dec. 1. Among the stops: Morro Rock, where they took a photo of the 50-plus vehicles at the base of the Rock.
Dramatic videos show the destroyed homes, mangled cars on the beach and destruction after deadly mudslides in Montecito near Santa Barbara. On Jan. 10, the death toll stood at 17, with at least 17 people still missing.
