PHOENIX (AP) — A storm that rolled through metropolitan Phoenix this morning brought about a half inch of rain and has caused flooding in some washes.
Authorities say they rescued several motorists who became trapped in their vehicles as they tried to drive through floodwaters. No injuries were reported.
The downpour has prompted the shutdown of several roads.
Areas north of Tucson also are seeing rain.
