Weekend Storm Wreaks Havok On Parts Of The Southwest
A large storm slogged through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma on its way east ahead of Thanksgiving.
Flagstaff, Ariz., had 11 inches of snow from Thursday through Sunday morning. The city was expected to get another inch by the end of Sunday before the storm tapered off.
Metro Phoenix and other parts of central Arizona received between one and a half and two and a half inches of rain over the course of the storm. Bad weather canceled sporting events and parades and damaged the roofs of homes across Arizona.
Portions of New Mexico, especially in some of the higher elevations, also had several inches of snow, and near whiteout conditions were reported along stretches of Interstate 40 west of Albuquerque.
