Standing on about 3 to 4 feet of mudflow, L.A. County Fire Dept. firefighter Manuel Urquiza, from Pico Rivera Station 103 Urban Search & Rescue, surveys the scene where an outdoor table is nearly burried in mud. He was in the backyard of a home almost on a cul de sac near the north end of Ocean View Blvd. in La Cañada Flintridge on Friday, November 13, 2009. A sudden storm last night caused the damage.

Heavy storm cells overnight caused several minor mudflows throughout the hillsides left bare by the Station fire, according to the National Weather Service and county officials.
