Monsoon Damage Around The Valley Last Night

posted by Melissa Sharpe - 

Thousands of people across the Valley are asking each other today, "Where were you when the lights went out last night?"  More than eleven-thousand of them were at Chase Field, where the Diamondbacks and Rangers had a 20-minute delay.  More than 100-thousand homes and businesses lost power last night when a big monsoon storm blew through.  The storm packed high winds, rain, and a wall of dust.


What caused the lights to go out? ESPN's Pedro Gomez had this disturbing answer:

There's a slight chance the Valley could see stormy weather every night this week.  The National Weather Service forecasts a ten-percent chance of thunderstorms through Wednesday evening.  The chance of a storm increases to 20-percent Thursday night.  Daytime highs are expected to top out around 108 to 109. 

Winds last night LITERALLY snapped this palm tree in two! 🌴🌴Thanks to @bernadette_thoe for sharing this video from the west Valley... #abc15 #arizona #storm #monsoon #palmtree #instagood #igers #weather
