>> This was the monster mudslide, that resulted in over 20 deaths in southern California in January, when a major rain storm hit areas scorched by a wildfire last year. Now with the state's deadliest and most destructive wildfire ever, the Camp Fire in the north and the Woolsey fire in the south stripping force of their vegetation and trees.
Authorities in California are keeping a cautious eye on the soil that those forests normally hold in place. The National Weather Service expects up to four inches of rain to fall north of San Francisco between Tuesday and Friday and two inches in the south raising the risk of dangerous mud slides in those areas.
Emergency services stepped up their efforts on Monday to find the remains of the campfire victims as nearly 1,000 people are still unaccounted for. So far the remains of 77 people have been recovered. At the same time, many welcomed the rain, which is not only expected to aid firefighters with containing the fire but also provide some relief to California residents who've been choking on the thick smoke that's blanketed their cities.
