Storms move into the Valley for another round of monsoon weather
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- The monsoon weather continued for the state as some parts of the Valley were hit by rain, wind and dust on Sunday evening. Some Gilbert residents even got tiny bits of hail in their front yards! The storm moved from the north and slowly made its way toward the Valley. Around 4:30 p.m., blowing dust was spotted on the Loop 303 in the northwest Valley. Arizona Department of Public Safety reminded drivers to pull over and turn off your lights if you get caught in the dust storm.
The East Valley was once again hit heavy by the storm. Arizona’s Family viewers shared videos of trees knocked over in the storm and pea-sized hail covering yards. In addition, heavy rain was coming down on drivers on the Loop 202 near Williams Field Road.
Sunday’s storm is the latest in wild weather in the past week. On Friday, a majority of the East Valley was hit by rain and winds, causing heavy flooding in some areas. One woman had to be rescued after a Scottsdale park flooded around her.
11 APS outages were reported in the metro Phoenix area, affecting nearly 800 customers. Five outages were reported for SRP customers. The National Weather Service says some power lines in Chandler neighborhoods were knocked down.
The NWS said a dust storm warning was in effect, but expired at 6:15 p.m. for parts of Pinal County, including Casa Grande and Eloy. Most of the state is also under a flood watch until 11 p.m., including Flagstaff, Phoenix, Lake Havasu and Kingman.
