A flash flood warning has been set for the burn areas in the San Gabriel Mountains where the Station and Morris fires burned last summer. "Rain gage reports indicate that rates have exceeded both one and three hour rainfall thresholds that should produce debris flows. Although th rain may taper off by 5:00 p.m., storm runoff will continue the threat for debris flows until 6:30 p.m.," stated an urgent alert from the National Weather Service. The alert is also in effect for Santa Anita.
