A family watches as workers set up K-rails to serve as flood protection barriers in a residential neighborhood in preparation against possible flash floods and mud slides in the second, and larger, of two storms to hit drought-plagued California this week in Azusa, California, February 27, 2014. The arrival of rain brings both minor relief from the third year of the worsening California drought and the threat of disastrous debris flows below mountainsides charred and hardened by an unseasonal wildfire, deemed the Colby Fire, that destroyed or damaged about two dozen homes, injured six people and sent thousands fleeing last month. Though welcomed, the rain is not expected to be enough to end the record historic conditions. REUTERS/David McNew (UNITED STATES - Tags: ENVIRONMENT) less
