Sometimes people get upset when weather warnings interrupt their TV shows. Really, how bad can flash flooding be?
Well, if we don’t know by now, it can be really bad – and a huge flash flood in Arizona this past weekend ended up sweeping away 14 people. Although warnings were issued, there was no cell service in their area – so without weather radios, they couldn’t have known.
Meanwhile upstream, another group of people caught the water as it churned out of the mountains – eventually forming a wall of ask, debris, rocks and mud estimated to be 6 feet high once it reached the narrows of the canyon. And though the footage is intense, you also want to scream at these people to move back!
