Monsoon

Some residents in Flagstaff’s Timberline neighborhood are cleaning up after Wednesday's historic rainfall caused widespread damage and flooding. They live just below the scar of the 2010 Schultz Fire on the eastern flank of the San Francisco Peaks. It’s a vulnerable area because the forest floor is loose, and unable to withstand heavy rain. A clogged drainage ditch made the situation even worse on Wednesday. KNAU’s Aaron Granillo reports from Timberline.
