CHINLE, Ariz. -- Flooding caused by recent heavy rains is still causing problems for some northern Arizona communities.

Seventeen people were staying Wednesday at a Navajo Nation shelter that the American Red Cross Grand Canyon Chapter is supporting in Chinle.

Flooding caused by heavy rain Monday also is affecting residents in Many Farms and Rock Point.

Sixteen people evacuated from Many Farms are staying at a hotel in Chinle at the Navajo Nation's expense.

In Rock Point, five people are staying at a church after being evacuated and nine other families are awaiting evacuation.

The Grand Canyon Chapter is providing meals, snacks, bottled water and coffee as well as cots and blankets at the shelter in Chinle.

Floodwaters are receding, but school remains canceled due to heavy mud that continues to obstruct roadways.
