Unseasonably wet weather sweet across Pima County on Thursday afternoon. Several washes around town were overflowing with water as heavy rain poured down.
The Santa Cruz River was running swiftly throughout the day. Another residential wash in Midtown left two people and a dog stranded inside their car. Tucson fire crews headed out to the scene as the water continued to rise around the vehicle. Firefighters were able to individually escort the women and their dog out to safety.
More driving trouble took place near Broadway and 5th avenue. Drivers were forced to slow down as they maneuvered through rising water on the roadways.
