Flash flood sweeps through town east of Phoenix

PHOENIX – A river of rushing water, mud and debris swamped an area east of metro Phoenix on Thursday, shutting down a major highway for hours and leaving behind a mess. Heavy rain dropped 2-4 inches in the Miami-Globe area late in the afternoon, triggering a flash flood that swamped streets and caused a rock slide on U.S. 60. The road closure stretched west to Superior.

Miami Weather: Partly Cloudy & Hot, Spotty Showers Possible

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – It was a dry, warm start across South Florida with temperatures in the upper 70s and low 80s. Late morning into the afternoon scattered storms will develop.
