Firefighters are warning people to avoid dangerous areas of town during hard rains.

KGUN9's Carlos Herrera reports that crews rescued two occupants of an SUV stuck between two streams on Silverbell south of El Camino del Cerro.

Preaching the mantra "Turn around, don't drown," officials warn to avoid flooded areas.

In addition to rain, lightning and flooding, dust storms are another potential danger motorists see on the roads during Monsoon season.
