6. we had .25 at the house and .56 at the Pomerene Tank

haven't checked the guage up near where you took the pic of the deer. we have had a pretty good summer actually. over 12 inches.

geez that sounds like so much, but it is well in the realm of just average. 20 years ago.

3. Nogales MX?

I note the chron on the video says Nogales, Sonora which is the community in Mexico immediately adjacent to Nogales AZ, separated from it by a big, ugly wall.

5. 1.5" in two hours!

I just heard a DJ on Gulchradio.com in Jerome, AZ say that it was storming and that the area got 1.5” of rain in two hours. That’s the stuff flash floods are made of. Jerome is a good ways from Nogales but they share the same monsoon atmospheric rivers.

I sure hope that guy in the river made it.

4. Rain + desert soils flash floods

The 2015 flooding in the Atacama (the driest desert on earth) was unbelievable.

7. How terrifying.

The force of Mother Nature is nothing to be trifled with.

8. my daughter's entire yard flooded on July 30 (in Phoenix)

Last edited Sun Aug 14, 2022, 09:43 PM - Edit history (1)

We had a very hard rain which lasted for over an hour; 2 inches total rainfall Bell Road/15th area

She literally had a river flowing through her yard, which overflowed and spilled over into the swimming pool.

Her area is supposed to be an emergency water runoff zone to drain water off the large cross street. There is a pretty good sized speed bump which presumably is there to slow down the water, and a whopping total of one storm drain in the whole cul de sac. Compared to the storm drains here in Ft Worth that thing looks like a letter slot. The main cross street has about half the number of storm drains a similar street would have here.

She was told after she moved in that water could seep into the garage during monsoon, however this was Noah's flood in comparison.

It isn't clear if a storm of this magnitude has hit the neighborhood in recent history, but if the tendency to flood had been fully disclosed, FHA would never have financed that house.

Not to mention the house was on sewer according to all the documentation but actually is on septic - which needs to be replaced.
