TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — A weakened Pacific storm appears to have spared Tucson from its line of fire, but it is slamming much of southern Arizona.

The National Weather Service says rainfall from remnants of Hurricane Odile has been hitting south and east of Tucson on Wednesday night.

Meteorologists say a flash-flood warning is in effect for Nogales, where a wash flooded a major street with several inches of water.

Nogales Mayor Arturo Garino, however, says the water has since receded and the city did not have to evacuate any residents.

Meanwhile, a flash-flood watch for Tucson that was to expire Thursday has been canceled.

Forecasters say there is a 40 percent chance of rain, but it won't be the heavy showers originally anticipated.
