Hikers Evacuated From Arizona Canyons Due to Flash Floods

Hikers in Arizona had to be evacuated due to flash floods near the Grand Canyon on Friday, March 17.

Hikers in the Havasupai Indian Reservation in Cococino County, Arizona, were stranded when flood waters washed away the bridge to the campground, tribe officials said. Local news reported that up to 300 hikers might have been affected.

The National Weather Service issued a flood warning for Supai village and its surroundings, urging people to seek higher ground immediately.
