Heavy Rain Causes Flooding in Phoenix Metro

22 Dec 2016, 6:07 pm

Heavy rain soaked the Phoenix metro Thursday morning right before the lunch hour commute. This caused flooding to occur on Interstate 10 and Interstate 17, even causing one motorist to be stranded under the Greenway underpass.

On Interstate 10, Arizona DOT officials had to pump floodwaters off I-10 at 59th and 67th avenues.

The City of Phoenix transportation department said North Valley Parkway was also closed due to flooding Thursday morning between Dixilata and Sonoran Desert drives.

So far today, Phoenix has received 0.42″ of rainfall, which makes it the wettest day since August 5th, when 0.52″ of rain fell.
