  1. My heart is broken before so much pain I still can not believe this is happening to my friend and family Father have mercy on them.

  2. you described the water flow all wrong… sheesh… Ellison flows from right to left (east to west) … my god you guys are all so stupid..

  3. I'M WONDERING IF THERE IS ANY SYSTEM SET UP FOR A PERSON WHO MIGHT BE NEAR THE BEGINNING OF THE FLOOD TO MAKE A CALL AHEAD TO WARN THOSE DOWN STREAM. I HEAR THE PEOPLE TALK OF HOW IT CAME OUT OF NOWHERE. HOW COME WITH CELL PHONE TECHNOLOGY AS IT IS THAT THIS COULD NOT BE RELAYED .
    I SAW IN ONE VIDEO HOW EVERYONE WAS JUST IN AW AND FILMING THE APPROACHING FLOOD BUT I DIDN'T HEAR OR SEE ANYONE MAKING THAT CALL .WHO KNOWS MAYBE 9 LIVES WOULD HAVE NOT BEEN TAKEN
    ANY THOUGHTS ?

  4. Heartbreaking I couldn't ever imagine this happening to any family

  5. One has to be aware of where they are, if they are in a dry riverbed. One can't afford to be unaware of their surroundings. Look around. If it looks like a dry riverbed, and it is the rainy season in an Arizona summer, don't be there; get to high ground. Flash floods and riverbeds go together. Don't be in the riverbed during the rainy season.
