Wickenburg Residents Cleaning Up After Strong Monsoon Storm

911 UPDATE: WPD Communications is up and running! All 911 calls are now coming in to WPD. Also, APS has advised that all power outages have been restored with the exception of Kellis and Turtleback. APS did not advise of how much longer the outage would last.

The strong storm that passed through town this evening has caused some issues with the Police Department Communications System. We are working diligently to resolve the problem. All 911 calls are being transferred to the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and WPD will be notified for response. The Wickenburg Police Department is still accessible at (928) 684-5411 for non-emergency calls for service. Thank you for your patience and stay safe!

Looks like we dodged another bad storm this evening! Areas to the north and west, however, got more than their fair share of rainfall. We are expecting to see flooding in Flying E Wash and Sols Wash across Vulture Mine Rd sometime this evening. Remember, please do not drive around barricades! They are there for YOUR safety!

As expected, heavy rainfall in Yavapai County is causing flood conditions that will effect Wickenburg. Currently, rising waters in the Hassayampa River and Martinez Wash have made Scenic Loop Road impassable. Flood water is expected to reach Rincon Road and will continue into town. Please stay out of the washes and NEVER cross flooded roadways.

WEATHER UPDATE: Good news! It appears the storm split and went around Wickenburg, hitting Congress to the north and Morristown to the south. We did get some wind and rainfall in town but no where near what was expected. Due to heavy rainfall to the north/northwest, we could see flooding on the west side of town. At this time, there is NO flooding along Vulture Mine Road. All roads are open.

SEVERE WEATHER ALERT! A very strong thunderstorm is moving into the Wickenburg area from the east. A lot of wind and rain is expected. Please get to shelter and remain in place until the storm passes. Flooding and power outages are expected, as we have experienced with recent storms. Updates to follow. Stay safe!
