Tucson made the national news today with flooding caused by torrential rains - leftovers from hurricane Norbert that passed off the Baja coast a few days back. The official rainfall at the airport doubled the previous record for 8 September with 1.84" today, but only the 9th wettest September day of all times... Still, that is a lot of rain when 12" a year is normal! Unfortunately, 2 women lost their lives locally in separate incidents when their cars were swept away trying to cross flooded washes... It is about the second thing you learn living in Arizona, do NOT enter a wash with water running (the first is about using sunscreen).
