There are several road closures in the Phoenix Valley, this is not a complete listing but for an example, the San Tan Freeway (202) from I-10 to the Loop 101 is CLOSED due to flooding. West Bound 202 is being diverted North on to the 101. I-10 has been shut down, active flooding from 43rd Avenue to 99th Avenue with several vehicles flooded and stranded in deep water. The Gila River Bridge crossing on I-10 was shut down for 30 minutes this morning due to high flood waters at the upper level of the bridge. Do NOT drive into flooded roadways.

The Pinal County area has already experienced a great deal of rain and saturated ground will not help things as more rain is expected in this event through the day and overnight. Locally heavy rain will cause localized flooding. Be cautious of low lying areas and roadways prior to entering in a vehicle. AVOID travel if possible. Travel to the Phoenix Metro area is not advised. Sand Bags and Sand is available at Station #586 and Firefighters will assist you. If your home is prone to flooding, please consider solid preparation before more rain arrives. Report active flooding in your area to 911. Move to higher ground in areas that have flooded in the past, even 4 inches of fast moving water can caused you to lose footing, fall, and be swept away into deeper water - DO NOT take any chances. Thank you, please Be Safe!
