Forecasters say more showers and thunderstorms are likely Thursday along the Mogollon Rim a day after heavy rain sent flowing water across Flagstaff-area streets and debris into a neighborhood.

A Twitter post by the National Weather Service's Flagstaff office advised northern Arizona residents to "be ready to seek shelter."
The Arizona Daily Sun reports that a street in the Timberline neighborhood north of Flagstaff was reopened after crews cleaned up trees, limbs and boulders washed into the road as debris backed up culverts.
The neighborhood sits just below the footprint of the Schultz Fire, which burned on the eastern flank of the San Francisco Peaks in 2010.
Rain gauges throughout the Schultz burn scar recording precipitation ranging up to nearly 6 inches (15 centimeters).
