The Pima County Sheriff's Department has issued an advisory for everyone thinking of going to Tanque Verde Falls or Sabino Canyon.

Redington Rd is now closed at MP 2. Sabino Canyon and Bear Canyon Hikers are urged to head down as well.

PCSD says to use caution and avoid the area if at all possible.

The rain from yesterday's storms have caused water levels in the Tanque Verde Falls area to be up to three times the level they were last Sunday when our Search and Rescue Unit rescued 17 people from the area.

PCSD says that Sabino Canyon is also at risk of flash flooding if another storm occurs today.
