Heavy Rain Fell This Weekend On The Schultz-Pipeline Burn Area, Pioneer Valley Area Hit Hard

Heavy rain fell on portions of the Schultz-Pipeline burn area this weekend sending water down into the Doney Park area. Saturday afternoon, heavy rain developed over the eastern side of the San Francisco Peaks. In the Government Tank area, an-inch-and-a-half of rain fell in the afternoon, but about an inch of rain fell in about 15-minutes. That sent another rush of water down from the mountain. Areas that saw a lot of water in the area last week, didn’t thanks to concrete and dirt barriers that were constructed during the week. Late Sunday night, storms developed in Doney Park, but very little rain fell on the burn areas. Most of the rain fell east of Highway 89, causing flooding of areas already saturated by recent flood waters. Pioneer Valley has been one of the hardest hit areas for flooding in the last week. For those who live in flood areas, be prepared for flash flooding soon after heavy rains.
