WATCH: Severe storms batter California

Storms continued to batter parts of central California on Tuesday, inundating roadways, prompting tornado warnings and requiring evacuations of entire communities. At least 14 people have died since the storms began after Christmas.

Flood and mudslide warnings are in place for many coastal areas, and evacuation orders have been issued, including for nearly 32,000 people in Santa Cruz County.

Residents of the seaside community of Montecito were evacuated on the fifth anniversary of a mudslide that killed 23 people and ruined over 100 homes.
