“Returning to a damaged or destroyed neighborhood is a traumatic occurrence, and you may feel overwhelmed by the many tasks ahead. Remember that self-care is the vital first step for you to remain healthy and resilient,” Cal Fire said in a statement.
Cal Fire urged residents to use caution when returning and said that many areas are still without access to power and gas. The boil water order is still in effect for Montecito Water District customers.
