Governor Ducey Issues A Second Emergency Declaration In Response To More Flooding In Flagstaff

Governor Doug Ducey issued a second emergency declaration Tuesday in response to last week’s flooding in the Museum Fire burn area in Flagstaff. Ducey says “extreme weather has taken a severe toll on many areas of Arizona so far this year, especially Coconino County.” He adds, “communities in the Flagstaff area have been hit hard by post-wildfire flooding, and Arizonans have truly come together to overcome the many hardships brought about by these emergencies.” The Declarations of Emergency make state funding available for response efforts and directs that the State of Arizona Emergency Response and Recovery Plan be used to oversee the deployment of state and other assets. Separate declarations are necessary to meet state reimbursement requirements. Over three inches of rain fell on the Museum Fire burn scar last Tuesday. Severe post-fire floods have impacted local communities causing damage to private property, public buildings and infrastructure, along with roadway and drainage system damages.
