Episode Narrative Subtropical moisture associated with an intense thunderstorm produced flash flooding just southwest of Montrose.
Event Narrative A ten foot high and 30 foot wide wall of water came roaring down normally dry Tappan Wash and went out of its banks in places, including yards of residences as well as a section of Dave Wood Road. A person hiking up the wash narrowly escaped the wall of water by quickly climbing up the wash embankment. Culverts and irrigation canals were clogged with debris which included logs and a large amount of personal property. Some of the personal property items were later found downstream. A camper trailer in a yard was knocked over and damaged by the flood waters, while a nearby trailer was picked up and carried a short distance away.
