Flooding follows heavy rain in parts of Flagstaff

FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -

A concrete retaining wall's failure sent floodwater through a mobile home park after monsoon rain drenched parts of the Flagstaff area.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the wall's failure late Sunday night sent water through yards and damaged some homes.

Firefighters carried a wheelchair-bound man through floodwaters to safety because it was thought his mobile Summit Fire home's foundation wasn't stable.

The National Weather Service recorded 1.38 inches in 15 minutes and 2.44 inches in an hour.

Summit Fire Department Chief Don Howard said it was the most intense flooding in the area seen since a 2010 wildfire scarred the Schultz Pass area.

Several roads remain closed because of flood damage, and the Forest Service had to bring in heavy equipment so stranded campers could get out.

    Many parents are angry after finding out there is a chance their child might not be able to attend pre-kindergarten for the upcoming school year. 

    A family's income has to be below 185 percent of the federal poverty guidelines to be accepted into a pre-K program with Calcasieu Parish Schools. 

    Unfortunately, many families who applied didn't meet those requirements, and have received a letter saying they've been wait listed.

    Come nightfall, it is a sight almost impossible to miss - swarms upon swarms of termites crowding bright lights.
