PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix residents have started cleaning up from devastating flooding that slammed Arizona.
Employees of the Cox Cactus Farm were hard at work Wednesday as they assessed the devastation brought on by the storms.
The farm lost most of its inventory as the raging floodwaters swept away hundreds of cactuses and other plants.
Co-owner Jessica Cox estimates it will take two years to fully recover from the storm.
The National Weather Service said some areas received more rain Tuesday than they had all last summer.
