FLAGSTAFF, AZ — The city of Flagstaff is declaring a State of Emergency after recent heavy rains have led to flash flooding.

The declaration made Tuesday will allow the city to be eligible for more resources to support clean-up efforts.

It comes after Arizona Governor Doug Ducey signed an emergency declaration earlier this month for flash flooding that hit Coconino County, including in the Pipeline Fire burn scar area.

At that point, Coconino County had spent over $2 million on flooding cleanup efforts.
