(Farmington-AP) -- Farmington residents are holding their breath until the weather clears up.
National Weather Service forecasters say continuous rain is causing the threat of mudslides in the area.
Last night, flash flood warnings were issued and fire and public works employees monitored the recent mudslide area. But no slides were reported.
Earlier this month, residents had to dig out from rain-triggered mudslides on a slope left bare by wildfires.
Geologists say intense thunderstorm rain could generate another debris flow.
Today there's a 70 percent chance of rain, and there's a 50 percent chance of rain on Thursday.
