In Arizona, flooding ranks second to extreme heat in the number of reported fatalities. Flash floods are especially dangerous and can occur quickly even when it isn't raining in the immediate vicinity. During monsoon season in particular, the Tanque Verde Falls area of Redington Pass is prone to flash floods which have stranded swimmers and hikers and led to numerous drowning deaths.

When a flash flood WARNING is issued for your area, or the moment you realize that a flash flood is imminent, act quickly to save yourself. You may have only seconds!
