Ventura County – Residents of Matilija Canyon Urged to Leave their Homes

The January storms have resulted in widespread damage and debris across Ventura County, especially in the Community of Matilija. Situated just 3 miles North of Ojai in the Los Padres National Forest, Matilija is located in a remote wooded canyon with just one way in and out. On January 9th, the community received over 17” of high-intensity rainfall resulting in significant damage and debris throughout the area. Towering piles of rock and mud reach over 40-feet tall in some locations, blocking access to roadways and leaving residents isolated to the canyon.  For further details, please click the following link:
