Detailed Description

Video footage begins with dry streambed, and within the first 10 seconds a very dark, roiling, flow comes downstream toward the viewer. The rest of the video is footage of the flow going past, and into a culvert under a bridge. The video was recorded at the U.S. Geological Survey streamgage site near the Coronado National Memorial visitor center, in southern Arizona. The flow event was the result of rain higher up in the basin, which includes the Montezuma Pass overlook area. The video includes the sound of rushing water as the flow event sweeps downstream.
