Record-Shattering Rainfall Floods Phoenix Area
On Monday, September 8, 2014, heavy storms inundated Phoenix and surrounding areas, flooding surface streets and freeways during the morning rush hour. By 7:00 AM, over three inches of rain had fallen in a community that averages only eight inches per year, setting an all-time record of rainfall for one day in Arizona. In the adjacent suburb of Tempe, a grocery store roof collapsed from the heavy rains, and thousands of residents reported power outages. The National Weather Serviceissued flash-flood watches for parts of California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and Colorado.
