Default Flash Flood Video
Because of the terrible tragedy in Pason recently I thought I'd post this excellent video. It shows just how fast a flash flood can happen.


Notice the width of the drainage that the flood filled. We tend to think of flash floods in slot canyons but this shows a very different situation.

I don't know how long this link will work. I've had trouble in the past with links from the Az Republic site having limited use.

Mods: If this post would be better placed somewhere else feel free to move it.

Cool, that was from the TRAL group that was up there on a work detail that day. I heard the voice of my old friend Skeeter in the background (the one who said to get on a log and ride it out)! A member on here k9bxj posted another video of the creek flowing fast:
