desert flash floods


Want to know what a desert flash flood looks like? Here’s a great version of it, a couple storm chasers in Arizona captured this video of a creek bed going from empty to rapidly flowing in the space of a few minutes. Note that it isn’t raining on them, so there would be no warning of the flood at the location seen here until the water appeared.


This does not seem like pleasant weather, but that’s what happens sometimes in the desert. Also consider this your monthly reminder for why you don’t drive through flooded streets.
