APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. -- Several roads in Apache Junction were still caked with mud Monday, after a flashflood dumped heavy rain a day before.

As water levels rose above two feet on Sunday, washes designed for drainage turned into rivers, forcing several cars downstream. There were three water rescues of stranded drivers. Everyone made it out safely.

When the water eventually receded, the city called in bulldozers to push the mud off to the side of the roads. Homeowners also used shovels to clean up the mess.

Some streets were blocked off for hours, as crews worked on clearing the roads. Firefighters said no homes suffered any significant flood damage.
