A severe monsoon has left Anthem flooded after heavy winds and rain rolled through the town.

Washes flooded, stores shut down and trees were uprooted.

The National Weather Service says the Anthem area received one and a half inches of rain in a 40-minute span late Tuesday afternoon.

According to APS, 1,500 homes were without power for about three hours in Anthem, but most of those are back up and running. All houses without power are expected to be back up and running over night.

Anthem storm damage

In Peoria, 2,000 homes lost power due to the storm but it has since been restored in the area.

One witness works in the Anthem strip off of the I-17, and was sent home because the power in her store went out.

"Everything blew over. Trash cans, benches, it's a mess." Nicole said. "People came running inside. You could hear the rain coming down and were concerned but we were okay as long as we stayed inside."

So far no injuries have been reported.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
