PHOENIX — Parts of Phoenix are cleaning up after a fast-moving
thunderstorm toppled trees and caused delays at Phoenix Sky Harbor International
The isolated showers and thunderstorms struck parts of the city Friday just
hours after temperatures hit a record 111 degrees.
Federal Aviation Administration spokesman Ian Gregor said several planes were
diverted from Sky Harbor on Friday evening and others had to do go-arounds
The storm struck parts of Maricopa and Pinal counties before sundown and caused
power outages to about 1,100 Salt River Project customers.
The National Weather Service reports that area can expect to see more showers
and thunderstorms beginning Sunday through Tuesday.
