Arizona, USA – At least nine people were killed and one person was still missing on Sunday night after flash flooding interrupted a family gathering in central Arizona over the weekend. The storm hit on Saturday, the first day of the region’s monsoon season, which lasts from mid-July through September. Flash flooding is common in Arizona during those months. The state’s low-lying roads and dry rivers and creek beds are particularly vulnerable to sudden downpours, with vegetation too sparse to slow the water’s sudden onset. Along with the flooding, Saturday’s storm caused several power failures, leaving thousands of people without electricity.
