LOS ANGELES (AP) - Southern California foothill communities laid bare by a wildfire are preparing for another round of rains and fears of mud and debris flows.

The National Weather Service says showers are likely to hit Glendora and Azusa late Monday and early Tuesday before moving on.

The storm comes about a month after a far larger one spurred evacuation orders for more than 1,000 homes in the cities in northeastern Los Angeles County, and about 2 ½ months after a wildfire left them stripped of vegetation and made them vulnerable to collapsing hillsides.

Parking restrictions have been issued on city streets and residents have been urged to clear them of trash cans and other objects.

Police plan to step up patrols in the area leading up to the storm.
