On Tuesday, August 12, 2014 south Phoenix received 6 months worth of rain in 90 minutes. A one-mile corridor between roughly 15th Ave and 27th Ave received significant flooding, prompting the Red Cross to send assessment teams through the area on Wednesday and Thursday. Those teams identified 3 sites in need of TR assistance. TR AZ performed our own assessments on Thursday and discovered one house with significant damage and 3 other homes with minor damage.
