9/18/2014 Tropical Storm Odile Flash Flooding in Southeast Arizona.
Just doing a recap the chase trip of what was the remains Hurricane Odile that moved into southeastern Arizona this afternoon and caused flooding in several communities. Knowing the area after chasing down here a few times now and learning the data holes, I was able to pull a rabit out of the hat and actually get to see the effects of the flooding.
I was also able to get some Infrared photography in at 5000 feet above sea level with the cloud deck right on top of me.
Here is the footage. The footage is from the town of Pima, AZ in the first part of the video from the start to 1;24;00. and the second part of the video from 1;24;00 to end is from around the area of Whetstone, AZ.
