LOS ANGELES (CBSLA)  — As Los Angeles dries out from the soaking it got yesterday, meteorologists warn there is more rain on the horizon.

And weather observers say the rain yesterday is going to pale in comparison to what is expected to show up late Saturday into early Sunday. Oh, and did we mention it’s also supposed to rain late Friday into Saturday?

This is, of course, not good for the residents of the burn areas where mudslides remain a distinct possibility.

We are on Storm Watch.

In response to an evacuation order issued in Ventura County, Red Cross volunteers opened a shelter at Nordhoff High School in Ojai at 8 p.m. Friday.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered for 6 p.m. in parts of Ventura County, specifically Matilija Canyon / Wheeler Springs / North Fork.

Effective at 6 a.m. Saturday, there will be voluntary evacuations of homes along San Antonio Creek.

At 8 p.m. Friday, evacuations were ordered in Santa Barbara County, specifically in burn areas affected by the Thomas, Whittier and Sherpa fires.

A shelter has been opened at the Goleta Valley Community Center.

The city of Burbank asked for voluntary evacuations for people living on County Club Drive above Via Montana. That evacuation would start at 5 tomorrow morning and remain in effect at least through 4 p.m.

KCAL9’s Jeff Nguyen spoke to people who were at the Ventura Beach RV resort. They were moved to higher ground.

“They just said they were evacuating and we had to leave,” said Vicki Pridemore.

The RV park has the potential to flood, Nguyen reported.

“We arrived the day before. Got all set up and everything and then they said tear it down and get out,” said Randall Pridemore.

The Pridemores will ride out the storm at San Buenaventura State Beach along with other RV-ers.
