A River Runs Through It.  The Scottsdale Fire Department has been busy responding to a number of water rescues after a monster monsoon tore through the valley Friday morning. Crews are zig-zagging across Valley roadways clearing cars from multiple flooded washes.  First off, two guys were rescued
 

from a stalled U-Haul submerged in a flooded wash at Happy Valley and Hayden.  Several cars have been trapped in rushing water that’s either six inches deep to almost two feet deep which could carry a car downstream.  Today is another reminder to motorists that you should never driver or walk into flooded water. So far, no injuries have been reported.

Road Closures:

Jomax Rd between Pima and Scottsdale Rd

Happy Valley Rd between Pima and Scottsdale Rd

Scottsdale Rd between Deer Valley and Happy Valley

Pima Rd between Jomax and Dynamite.
