SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The crawling atmospheric river storm system that’s taken its time to maneuver down the Central Coast has given business owners time to make a safety plan in areas ahead of the rain.
Many have shown up to shore up their doors and driveways.
Some have not fully reopened due to the coronavirus crisis and some have had limited hours.
On many streets known for flooding, sandbags and other protections were up at business entrances.
Visible preparation has been done on Anacapa Street downtown, along with Ortega and parts of De la Vina.
In December some businesses were hit by mud and debris when storm drains clogged up during a two-day rain event. Business owners hoped to avoid a second round Thursday.
