Gov. Doug Ducey declared a state of emergency in Coconino County after excessive rain caused flood damage.

His office on Friday said $200,000 of emergency funds will be used toward recovery efforts.

Monsoon storms from July 14 through July 18 brought unusually heavy storms in northern Arizona. One storm produced three inches of rain in an hour, and another produced five inches in two hours.

The rain caused flooding that obstructed roads, swept in debris and damaged public and private property.
