How fires can lead to flooding
October 8, 2009
Scientists and emergency planners are worried that the big wildfires that swept through parts of the Los Angeles area earlier this year could lead to dangerous flooding
this year if any heavy rains fall over the burned areas. The US Geological Survey has been modeling what would happen if areas hit by the Station Fire were to experience heavy rainfall, and their conclusions give rise to concerns that the now-barren land could easily wash away in a strong rain, leading to mudslides filled with debris.
