Monsoon Madness

Posted By on Tue, Jul 31, 2007 at 4:11 PM

The airport is reporting almost an inch and a half of rain (so far!) this afternoon. And I have a goddamn leak in my office here at Weekly World Central. Garrett at the Southcentral Bureau reports flooded streets and general messiness in the Reid Park area.

Any monsoon stories or observations you'd like to share?

UPDATE: I am now informed (as of 4:30 p.m.) that the Southcentral Bureau (22nd/Country Club) is without power. I went to the Tucson Electric Power Web site to get some information, and it seems to be down. I take this to be a bad sign. 

UPDATE NO. 2: We're getting word that people were found dead in a vehicle in the Rodeo Wash, and there's lots of chaos out there. Please ... be safe, everyone.
