Weather Warnings 9/30/2018

Dear Neighbors
There a possibility of several inches of rain falling in our area in a short amount of time.  That doesn’t happen often, but when it does there is always a chance of flash flooding and localized down pours near ridges and washes.  If you live below a ridge or in or near a wash, please consider using the sand and sand bags which are located in Rimrock on Beaver Creek Rd at the back of the Sedona Recycling area in front of the BC Baptist Church and in Lake Montezuma in the Sycamore Park parking lot.  Important information from Copper Canyon Fire & Medical follows and the National Weather Service advisory follows that.

The initial concerns will be regarding the rainfall amounts that are predicted with the storm, 3-4″ are possible in conjunction with 20-40 mph sustained winds. It is non-specific on the associated time frame for this volume of water. At this time these figures are defined as the potential, they are not definitive. Our office will be coordinating with all of our response organizations, County departments, DEMA, and our VOAD partners in preparation for this possible scenario.
Potential impacts will include but are not limited to the following:
1.       Power failure
2.       Flooding
3.       Shallow inundation
4.       Wind damage
5.       Damage to Lifelines (power, transportation, utilities, communications, water systems)
Again, I would like to state that this is only precautionary at this time and for the purpose of your situational awareness.
Thank you for your attention and support.

Dear Neighbors
Lots of good news this week!  Deuce the dog was found at VVHS and is back at home.  This chip sealing got off to a slow start and is not proceeding in the expected order, but Cactus Asphalt is doing a much better job than we had from the last chip sealing work done in our area.  Before your street is chip sealed, a “Notice to Residents” flyer will appear at your home which has the dates to NOT park in the street.  Meanwhile, enjoy this nice beginning fall weather!
On Thursday at the Montezuma Rimrock Fire Station the annual Kiwanis Donation Spaghetti Dinner will be from 5 to 7 PM.  Kiwanians and Kiwanis student clubs invite you to come spend an evening visiting with us.  At lunch time on Tuesday, the Lake Montezuma Women’s Civic Club meets for the first time this fiscal year and has a special guest speaker from Out of Africa.  On Saturday, a monarch butterfly survey is being completed at Montezuma Well.  If you’d like to participate, the instructions to register are below.  Also on Saturday morning, the Food Bank at Beaver Creek School will be open.
