At least 8 dead in Arizona flash flooding

At least 8 dead in Arizona flash flooding

The fourteen people swept away in the flood were part of a large family from the Phoenix and Flagstaff areas who had met up Saturday to spend the day at the popular swim spot. Two adults and two children rescued by helicopter Saturday were taken to the hospital for hypothermia.

"It's pretty much recovery (now). We don't believe there's anybody left out there", Water Wheel Fire and Medical District Fire Chief Ron Sattelmaier said.

Hornung said the National Weather Service had issued a flash flood warning about 1 1/2 hours before, "but unless they had a weather radio out there, they wouldn't have known about it". In this case, there were thunderstorms in the area as predicted, but there was no rain where the people were swimming.

"There was a bunch of stuff flying at us and we were way above the water, it was dramatic", Sandoval said.

"It probably got up to about 4 feet, I would say, and where we were walking, you could see all the broken tree branches and mud everywhere", Alexander said. "It looked like a really big mudslide".

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch and warned of hazardous weather for the area on Monday morning.

Gov. Doug Ducey responded to the incident on Facebook.

"My deepest prayers go out for all those lost in yesterday's flooding, for their families, and for the entire community", Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, said Sunday.

I just spoke with Sheriff Shepherd. Flash flooding is common in Arizona during those months.

"In central Arizona, it's the monsoon season, and thunderstorms and heavy rains can develop very quickly", sheriff's office spokesman David Hornung explained to Fox News.

"It's overgrown. It's rocky".

Hornung said there was no way to notify people of the flash-flood warning because cell service is limited and there are no officials stationed in the area.
