Coconino County Shifts Alert System To Potential Flooding In Flagstaff

Now that the Museum Fire is getting closer to full containment, Coconino County is shifting its alert system to potential flooding in Flagstaff. The county will issue emergency notifications when the National Weather Service sends out a flash flood warning over the Museum Fire scar, and rain gauges or other notifications let officials know of impending dangerous conditions. The initial message will read “Dangerous flood possible. Shelter in place. Get to higher ground.” A longer message will be emailed with further information. Officials remind residents, don’t attempt to cross flooded areas and respect all traffic barricades. Call 911 to report a flooding emergency. Don’t walk through flowing water. Don’t let your kids or pets play near channels, creeks or streams when water is rising. Also don’t leave trash cans in any area subject to flooding and purchase flood insurance if you live in flood prone areas. If you haven’t done so already, sign up for emergency notifications at coconino.az.gov.
