Increased flooding risk due to Museum Fire in Flagstaff neighborhoods

CCFCD

Coconino County and Flagstaff City officials are asking people to be prepared for potential flooding in the Mount Elden Lookout Estates, Paradise Road, Grandview Drive and Sunnyside neighborhoods.

Elevated concerns are a result of the Museum Fire and U.S. Weather Service forecasts.

The majority of the Museum Fire is within the Spruce watershed and flood waters may flow through those areas. Beginning today and through the weekend, National Weather Service forecasts indicate that monsoon rains are more than likely each day. Flood Control officials are conducting flood assessments and preparing mitigation efforts for homes in the immediately affected area, which includes sandbags.

Residents can self-fill sandbags at two different locations, Joel Montalvo Little League Fields at the corner of Spruce St and First Avenue and on Aztec Street near Francis Short Pond. Self-fill sandbags are available for those residents in the immediately affected neighborhoods listed above.

Pre-filled sandbags are available after noon to dusk Tuesday, July 23 at the Coconino High School South Parking Lot. Beginning Wednesday, sandbags will be available from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Staff will be present to verify that sandbags are disbursed only to those residents living in the affected floodplain.

Officials encourage residents to purchase flood insurance for the protection of their homes. More information on the purchase of flood insurance is available at www.floodsmart.gov or by contacting their insurance agent.

Residents with questions can contact the Emergency Operations call center at 928.213.2990. People are also encouraged to sign-up for emergency notifications for evacuation and other notices at coconino.az.gov/ready.



El Condado de Coconino y los oficiales de la Ciudad de Flagstaff  estan pidiendo que el público se prepare para  inundaciones potenciales en las comunidades en Mount Elden Lookout Estates, Paradise Road, Grandview Drive y Sunnyside. Las preocupaciones elevadas son debido al Incendio Museo y el pronóstico del Servicio de Clima de los Estados Unidos.

La mayoría del Incendio Museo está entre la cuenca Spruce y las aguas de inundación podrán fluir entre esas áreas. Empezando hoy y atravez del fin de semana, el Servicio Nacional de Clima pronostica que las aguas de monzón son probable cada día. Oficiales del Control de Inundación están administrando evaluaciones de inundación y preparando esfuerzos de alivio para los hogares en las áreas inmediatas afectadas, incluyendo bolsas de arena. 

Residentes pueden rellenar bolsas de arena en dos diferentes localidades, Joel Montalvo Little League Fields en la esquina de Spruce St y  First Avenue y en Aztec Street cerca Francis Short Pond. Bolsas de arena estarán disponible para los residentes en las áreas inmediatamente afectadas.

Bolsas de arena ya preparadas estarán disponible despues de mediodia hasta el anochecer martes, 23 de julio en el estacionamiento sur de Coconino High School.  Empezando Miércoles, bolsas de arena estarán disponible desde 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Funcionarios oficiales estarán presente para verificar que las bolsas de arena preparadas serán distribuidas solamente a los residentes viviendo en zonas de inundación. 

Los funcionarios oficiales recomiendan comprar una póliza de seguro contra las inundaciones para la protección de su hogar. Para más información sobre las pólizas de seguro contra inundaciones, visite www.floodsmart.gov o comuníquese con su agente de seguros.  

Residentes con preguntas pueden contactar al Centro de Operaciones de Emergencia al 928.213.2990. Se le aconseja al público que se registren para notificaciones de emergencias y notificaciones de evacuaciones y otras noticias en coconino.az.gov/ready.
