Flooding sparks state of emergency in Mohave County, more rain on the way

Posted: Updated:

LITTLEFIELD, Ariz. --  Severe flooding in northwestern Arizona has spawned a state of emergency declaration in Mohave County.

The Beaver Dam Wash and the Virgin River were both raging. The fast-moving water swept a home down the wash. Nobody was hurt.

One weather station reported at least 10 inches of rain Tuesday. A gauge near the Beaver Dam recorded 10,000 cubic feet of water per second flowing downstream.

Mohave County Supervisor Buster Johnson told Kaley O'Kelley and Javier Soto exactly what is happening in the area.

Meteorologist April Warnecke said the area will be getting more rain today.
