>>> this right here is the definition of a flash flood right before our very eyes. a viewer in tucson shot this video. it captures exactly something we've been reporting on and talking about recently. this happens to be an area scorched by wildfires and note the soil can't absorb the rainfall. instead it has no choice but to flow right on through.
