Residents in the Museum Fire Flood Area of north Flagstaff saw a second day of flooding Wednesday, and this time it was more wide spread. The flooding began at around 2 p.m. with flood waters starting in Mount Elden Estates then the county put Sunnyside, Paradise and Grandview into shelter-in-place. Water again rushed across Cedar Avenue and into Sunnyside. This time flood waters hit the upper Greenlaw area of Flagstaff, outside of the Museum Fire burn area. County flood officials say more than two-and-a-half inches of rain was recorded in the Skyline, upper and lower Greenlaw, Swiss Manor and the Fanning areas, which resulted in significant flooding. Water and debris rushed through washes and into front yards of several homes. Some homes had water and debris into garages and backyards. Lockett Drive was closed for a short time due to water and debris covering the road. One video showed a gushing river of water running down a street, taking a car with it. Water also flooded Route 66 at Fanning, closing the busy road for a short time. Rain gauges on the burn scar showed an inch of rain or more fell across the burn area in about an hour. The National Weather Service is calling for another good chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday and through the weekend. Pre-filled sandbags are available to residents at the County Health and Human Services Building at 2625 North King Street. The self-fill sandbag station is also available.
