SANTA BARBARA (CBS / AP) – A flood on the southern Santa Barbara County coast has swept cabins and vehicles down a narrow canyon as the latest storm drenches California.
County Fire Department Capt. Dave Zaniboni says a creek overflowed at midmorning Friday and swept five cabins and 15 vehicles down the canyon which lies just above El Capitan State Beach.
Firefighters rescued one person from a vehicle and another person got out of a vehicle on their own. Neither was injured.
Zaniboni says a dozen people are stuck up El Capitan Canyon but none are injured. Authorities are trying to determine how to get those people out.
The canyon contains a private campground with 200 cabins.
