Flash Flood Video from The Lake Powell Area

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Rankin Realty at Lake Powell, LLC
Flash floods are a part of life in Northern Arizona and Southern Utah and happen when the summer monsoonal flow begins. This year has been particularly active. Below is some footage my son, David, shot behind our house in the Wahweap Creek basin, a normally dry wash. Wahweap Creek dumps into Lake Powell at Wahweap Bay.

Heather, has the lake level risen much as a result of the flooding. Do you worry about the water level?

Lake Powell is currently almost 70 feet from full pool and roughly less than half of its capacity. The lake is 186 miles long, has roughly 2000 miles of shoreline, so for now, we can use all the water we can get.

Water to the lake comes mostly from the Colorado Rive and the Green River along with the San Juan and Dirty Devil rivers.
