Sadly, the folks in the Timberline area are still realizing the severe damage from the campfire-caused Schultz Fire. With this weeks heavy monsoon action, flash flooding has ruined homes and neighborhoods and taken the life on one young girl. Keep those folks in your thoughts and prayers.

The National Weather Service has done a great job warning about this danger well in advance of the recent onset of the monsoonal thunderstorms. Here are several important links:

July 20 Flood

Schultz Burn Area Hydrologic Outlook

NWS Flash Flooding

Moisture levels are going to continue to remain high for the rest of this week. Localized flash flooding can happen in many areas. Also, keep in mind that the storm doesn’t have to be overhead to affect flooding in your area. It can take place miles away, but the drainage pathways, narrow canyons and washes, can lead the water to cause massive flooding at your location.
