Flash flood in Tangue Verde Creek, Tucson, Arizona.

Journal of Hydraulic Engineering



The flood of July 26, 1981, in Tanque Verde Creek east of Tucson, Arizona, that killed eight people near Tanque Verde Falls was just a small one for this stream. Dangerous floods are not necessarily large ones; two much larger floods occurred there within a week. Floods can travel for miles at rates of rise and speeds too great for a person to escape from rough stream channels. -from ASCE Publications Information
