Episode Narrative Tropical moisture in association with the Southwest Monsoon streamed north into western Wyoming. Heavy rainfall in the foothills of the Teton Range west of Jackson triggered a debris flow.
Event Narrative Heavy rain triggered a debris flow in Jensen Canyon shortly before 3:00 p.m. Eyewitness reports indicated that entire trees, boulders, and mud were moved by the debris flow which was three to eight feet deep. The flow pushed an automobile for 20 to 30 feet before flipping it onto its side. A small outbuilding near one residence was also damaged. A geologist measured a mud line 40 feet up the sides of the canyon upstream from the canyon mouth.
