Flooding on the Rillito 31 July 2006 -- Tucson

I've put together a webpage with videos and historical peak discharge information related to the Rillito Creek flooding of 31 July. CLICK HERE to see it. Hopefully, a meteorological analysis of the storms /MCSs that led to this event will appear in a future post by Bob.

P.S. For you flood-o-philes out there, July 31st is also the 3oth anniversary of the Big Thompson Flood in Colorado which took place 7-31-1976.

    I've got a few videos too. Some are high res and your system may not be able to keep a constant framerate. These were taken at the Craycroft bridge before the police got there.
