At least 8 dead in Arizona flash flooding

The Latest Stranded teen recounts terror of flooding

At least nine people are dead and at least one missing after flash flooding swept away a family at a swimming hole in central Arizona.

Emergency workers received a 911 call regarding a Search and Rescue Operation around the Cold Springs Swimming Hole, located in the town of Payson, Arizona, county sheriff's office said in a statement.

Four people were rescued by helicopter crews Saturday and were treated at a nearby hospital for hypothermia.

A 13-year-old boy is still missing. The ninth victim found was a 2-year-old.

They have not been named by authorities.

The National Weather Service said storms moved in from north of the Phoenix area around 9 p.m., bringing heavy rain, wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour and hail as they moved south.

Ellison Creek flooded the narrow canyon where the family members were swimming. "They heard a roar and it was on top of them", Sattelmaier said. It happened during monsoon season, when weather like this can strike furiously.

New loan move agreed for Chelsea's Van Ginkel
Chelsea and PSV Eindhoven have reached an agreement for Marco van Ginkel to return to the Dutch club on another season-long loan. He has spent time on loan with AC Milan and Stoke, before joining PSV on loan for the first time in January 2016.

A flash flood warning was issued for the Phoenix area until 1:30 a.m.

"We were kinda looking at the water; it was really brown", she said.

More than hundred visitors were present at the spot at the time of the incident at Cold Springs swimming hole in Tonto National Forest, Water Wheel Fire and Medical District Fire Chief Ron Sattelmaier said, according to reports. It happens every year.

"We were just there to have a good time, and the next thing you know, all you see is this big flash flood", she said.

A husband and wife from California were killed in September 2008 when they were trapped in a flash flood while hiking in a slot canyon in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument in Utah.

"If it's an intense burn, it creates a glaze on the surface that just repels water", said Darren McCollum, a meteorologist. Visitors are reminded to be vigilant about the weather, he said. "We got a lot worse news".

Seven people were confirmed dead on Sunday.
