Flooding Fears: Storms hit Yarnell again

Posted: Updated:
YARNELL, Ariz. -

Yarnell was under a flash flood warning for a few hours Friday after well over an inch of rain fell and for the people who live next to the burn area, that means a lot of clean up.

A front loader cleared a silt and ash covered road after another big storm left behind a mess.

"Last night, we had a waterfall coming down off the mountain that is how much it was," said Larry Wells.

The homes on this street back up to the charred mountain, so when the run-off comes down, it brings everything with it.

"You could hear it.. was like a freight train coming over the rocks," said Linda Buschman.

Buschman covered parts of her yard with sandbags, but she can't relax.

"We are still getting a lot of silt coming down and there is no stopping it.  The only thing you can do is stand on the side with a shovel and keep the trough clear and grab some more sandbags and keep building it up," she said.

This latest storm brought in more than an inch and a half of rain.

Since the wildfire, this area has seen as much as three inches of rain.  It's already been a rough monsoon season.

"Never anything like this never," said Bernie Dickson.

Dickson has called Yarnell home for more than 30 years.

"It is just devastating with this black stuff all over everywhere. There isn't much we can do about it. It is going to come down until it is all gone that is all," he said.

The people in the burn area have been told to expect that black run-off for awhile.

    Wineries flourish in Brooklyn

    Hundreds of oak barrels of wine are all stacked in one room. You might think this is Napa, California. But it's not. It's the Brooklyn Winery, located in what was once an old pickle factory in Williamsburg. Refrigerated grapes are brought in from the North Fork of Long Island and from the Finger Lakes and then aged in barrels. These days urban wineries are becoming more popular, and they're popping up all over the borough.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio unveiled a sweeping report Thursday that examined New York City's recovery progress from Superstorm Sandy and promised to reform a much-maligned program that was supposed to rebuild wrecked homes. Speaking to about 50 homeowners, officials and community leaders in a storm-battered Staten Island neighborhood, the mayor said the city is aiming to start rebuilding an ambitious 500 homes through its federally funded Build-It-Back program.
