Anthem woman swept under water by flood

ANTHEM, AZ - Strong storms in Anthem dumped enough water to overflow a wash and knock down a brick wall Tuesday night.

A woman, who asked only to be identified as Jeannette, said she was in her backyard when the brick wall collapsed.

"I actually went under water and was stuck under my hot tub," she told ABC15.

Jeannette said she swam as hard as she could to the surface and hopped on a nearby fence until a neighbor helped rescue her.

Across Anthem, debris cluttered neighborhoods and roadways.

Landscaping crews expected to work overnight to clean up the mess.
