Arizona slammed with worst storm in state history


www.azcentral.com

A huge winter storm slammed into Arizona Thursday, flooding highways and forcing some evacuations, stranding travelers at the Phoenix airport, and prompting Gov. Jan Brewer to declare a state of emergency for the entire state.

Growing up in arizona my whole life I can assure you that we have never seen a storm like this. We never have thunderstorms in the winter and yet the last three days the storms have been filled with thunder, lightening, and even tornado watches (which NEVER happens here).

We are now under a weather emergency. The airport has canceled some 120+ flights, huge sections of our freeway are closed, and mass flooding is making driving conditions horrible all over the state.

There is a tornado watch in effect until 10PM az time, with winds getting up as high as 75MPH. They are expecting sever flooding and power outages in the saburban areas as well as the downtown areas.

Please keep the residents of arizona in your thoughts. NAU has closed the campus until further notice, and a lot of grade schools (and a few high schools) have shut down as well until next monday.

I will keep everyone up to date with any more information I come across or any more personal insight I discover. Once again - if you live in the state of arizona they are recommending you to stay inside and not drive or go out for anything...if at all possible.

If anybody else from california or arizona would like to share your experiences, please do. This is the storm that just got done slamming southern california. As I type this, the small valley sidewalk behind my house, which is about 20 ft deep, is now halfway flooded. I've never seen it above 5 ft...

Update from Channel 3 News.... 5 semi trucks overturned on Interstate 8 from Yuma to San Diego due to excessive wind conditions.

Also low lying areas in Sedona Arizona asking people to evacuate.

Well I live in the tempe/scottsdale area and from what i've experienced it's not the worst ever. But supposedly up in the high country it's getting bad and i've heard reports of snow or bad wind in the tucson area. It's been raining awhile and flooding will always be a problem with our hard ground. I'll keep ya posted if anything changes in this area of the woods.

I live out near Apache Junction. It has rained for three days now, but today was the worst. Still not too bad. Folks here do not know what to do when it rains outside of the monsoon season. They are shocked.

just talked to my mom, she is still in phoenix, i recently moved to slc. she said the storm from 08/08 was far worse than what she is seing right now. that could be due to where she is located though.... the storm i mentioned from 08/08 was intense, im a huge fan of bad weather and really enjoyed that one. oh how i will miss the monsoons

Hello.... I live in the west valley, 83rd ave. the wind was bad awhile ago and it's been rainig all day, but this is not the worst I've seen here. I'm a native and alittle older than most of you, born in Globe Az. when there was gun fights in the middle of main street after the two bars closed.
Sorry off topic.
I don't think it is to bad yet, no power loss in my area yet. The wind is making my turbin fans on the roof spin really fast and make a lot of noise.

I don't know if this "pole shift" theory is correct,or if we're seeing the "birth pangs" the Bible mentions that are associated with the End Times.

Anyway,this is a very interesting site. While I don't endorse everything it has to say,it is the kind of site that appeals to Conspiracy Theorists. Lots to look at!

Hey!

I'm up here in Prescott Valley @ 6000 ft. The snow has been off and on based on the temperature. We are expecting 10 inches. Not overly rare for up here but the wind is brutal.

Gusting to 50mph and I've even seen lighting up near Jericho while the snow is falling. Pretty wild indeed!

Currently on post at Ft. Huachuca, southern Arizona for Army training. Today, rather tonite we were issued weapons.
I stood outside in the freezing rain for a couple of hours, soaking and cold. Of course Uncle Sam doesn't care when it comes down to the weather.

Ok, An old friend of mine lives out past Tonapha at 481 ave. He said that all the washes are over flowing and he can't get out even with his 4x4.
He and his wife wanted to go and get pizza at Tonapha Joes but was stopped at the first wash and the coyotes are every where, I guess their borrows are flooded.

I've lived in AZ off and on since 1972 and I've seen worse. Few people believe this but I saw a tornado in AZ south of I 10 between Tucson and Benson once in 1976. The winds are really bad in Southern Arizona right now and I'm afraid a window is going to blow out and thinking of running some tape across them.

Near Warner & Cooper in Gilbert here. Backyard is mostly underwater and the wind is crazy strong. Since we only had 3 something inches of rain last year, we can use it for sure. Having lived here since the '60's, I'll agree that it's definitely not the worst I've seen either. (That would probably be the time we were hit by a microburst!)

Oddly enough, a dust storm warning was also issued. Where the heck is there any place dry to make dust? Weird.

I don't have a clue what this question has to do with my post about Pole Shifts and weather!
