SIERRA VISTA Friday nights rain prompted a flash flood warning for Sierra Vista from the National Weather Service until 9:15 p.m., while police reported several flooded roads and intersections throughout the citys west end.
Sierra Vista Cpl. Bobby Essary was out among the storm when he reported that Wilcox Drive was like a river, and that both that road and 7th Street were nearly impassable to traffic.
There were also reports of flooding along the Highway 90 Bypass up to Buffalo Soldier Trail, though beyond the flooding there had been no reports of people in danger, except for one car that appeared to be stalled at the intersection of 7th Street and Wilcox Drive, he said.
Earlier Friday, at about 8 p.m., the National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for southwestern Cochise County, including Sierra Vista, until 9:15 p.m.
Radar rainfall estimates from the agency measured an estimated one to two inches of rain in Sierra Vista in less than an hour.
Wind gusts of up to 38 mph were measured by the weather agencys instruments at Libby Army Airfield as late as 7:55 p.m.
Could this be an indication that the drought may be ending?
mmmmmmm...., could BEEEeee....
What state is that in ?
Global warming. It isn’t rain, it’s the rising ocean levels causing the water in the streets.
(And yes, I know where Sierra Vista is)
I don’t know. I was first thinking what country. Don’t know if it is not inserted. I am sure it may be somewhere.
It would seem Arizona.
SandRat reports in from ? ? ?
They should have said “there was flooding just past where the dead deer used to be”.
Yeah, people really need to add these state to these local stories. I looked up counties in the US the other day; I won’t bother you with why but I wondered how many duplicate county names there are.
There are A LOT. Lots of ones sharing names with Presidents, which some might be named for the presidents but others I’m sure are not, like the many “clinton” counties. There are even counties named for states in other states. And then some singularities you wouldn’t expect, for example, there is only ONE Ocean County, the one in New Jersey!
And what is that I heard about the names of the Simpson’s town “Springfield”, that there’s a Springfield in every state? Could be true, don’t know.
So, yeah it would be helpful to give those details.
I hope it is right over the White Hut!

Hopefully some of the illegal invaders will not be able to cross the border!
In your neck of the woods, so to speak.
Joe Bastardi is right again! He said several months ago that this area where the drought has been the hardest would see rain. And now they are getting it.
He also mentioned a few months ago that there would be a bumper crop of corn this year.

Go out into the woods very often?
Is this normal rainfall ?
Because, if not, we are going to have to invest billions, maybe trillions, to control the clouds and the rain.
It isn’t fair that some places have more rain, some less.
We need a way to ensure everyone gets the same amount of rain.
We will all die if we don’t fix this.
