New FEMA map helps homeowners rebuild after the Montecito debris flow

Hosted by

The debris flow in Montecito this past winter changed not only people’s lives but the physical landscape of the community, too. Some creeks widened and deepened, others are now filled with rocks, and in many places, the risk of future flooding has intensified. New flood risk maps released this week by the Federal Emergency Management Agency will help homeowners figure out how -- and where -- it’s safe to rebuild.
