flooding

 Because of the potential for severe flooding from areas burned in the Woodbury Fire, a 7-mile, unpaved section of State Route 88 (Apache Trail) will remain closed from an area several miles east of Tortilla Flat to just west of the Apache Lake marina turnoff while the Arizona Department of Transportation continues assessing conditions.

Update:

As we start to see showers come through the area over the Museum Fire, the incident management team is aware of the potential for flooding in the future and is taking action to help prevent the impacts where possible. Even with the showers we have received over the fire to date, the fire is not out yet.

Meeting:

Over the weekend, the Tohono O’odham Nation Office of Emergency Management completed 50 home damage assessments within Districts impacted by Tropical Storm Rosa, including Gu Vo (11 homes), Pisinemo (17), Sif Oidak (20), and Hickiwan (2). Preliminary infrastructure assessments were also conducted by the Nation’s Planning Department, Natural Resources Department, and Tohono O'odham Utility Authority for public buildings and tribal utility systems. Damage assessments will continue in the coming days, including road assessments and comprehensive cost estimates.

Rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Rosa has produced unprecedented levels of flooding on the Tohono O’odham Nation, particularly in the vicinity of the Menagers Dam Community. The floodwaters have rendered road access to the community impassable and air access has been limited due to weather conditions.
