    Moon Mountain Avenue flooded after just 15 minutes of rain 8-9-06

    This was the first, and mildest, of five storms that summer.

    Flood waters running across Moon Mountain Avenue in the wash at the yellow house.

    Rapids rushing by at approx. 30MPH. Water looks like chocolate pudding, not water.

    Water was flowing from Mountain View Resort.

    Receding water across Moon Mountain Ave. twenty minutes after rain storm.

    Water had been "wall to wall" across the entire street and no asphalt was visible.

    Tyson Wash water running across Quail Trail Street 8-9-06.

    The street was washed out about 4 feet deep and about 300 feet wide.

    The asphalt was washed downstream for hundreds of feet from the road bed.

    Many grown trees, cacti, rocks and debris washed by very fast while I watched.

    The street was closed for several weeks while repairs were made.
