The fire-denuded areas of the San Gabriel Mountains north of the San Gabriel Valley appear to have escaped the worst of possible mud and debris flows, authorities said today.
Both Glendora and Azusa reported relatively negligible rainfall overnight from the storm system that hit elsewhere in the region, with no impact on the mountainsides bared by January's Colby fire.
Glendora Police Department Sgt. Marty Barrett said the city had received less rain by 4 a.m. today than it had Monday night and Tuesday morning.
Barrett said the rain that did fall had no impact on potential debris fields.
Azusa police Sgt. Xavier Torres said the city had also received minimal rain, with no reports of slides.
