Our townhouse is built about three feet above ground level. Until recently, we were in the 100 year flood plain. Yesterday, Areas of Tucson had over an inch of rain within 30 minutes. Near us, is a railroad underpass. The photo is from Zocalo Magazine (tucson). This morning, less than 24 hours later you can only tell their was a flood by all the gravel and debris left trailing on the roadways as a reminder.
