"Rainy Tucson" Flooding in Tucson Tip by celicababee

Flooding in Tucson, Tucson: 4 reviews and 2 photos

It's not supposed to rain in Tucson...they are surrounded by mountains which cast a prepetual rain shadow! Not during my stay! It rained two days straight in Arizona from the 22-23 of December. A little rain goes a long way here in the desert....Depending on what time of year you go, make sure you are aware of the dangers of flooding. I was driving around and there are thousands of signs that say "Do not enter when flooded," and markers that went up to 8ft!!!!! They are not kidding when they talk about lack of drainage!
