TUCSON, Ariz. -- Some power outages are reported in the Tucson area after a monsoon storm dropped up to 1 1/2 inches of rain on parts of the city.

Tucson Electric Power crews are working to restore power to more than 100 customers.

Power was restored earlier Monday to more than 1,600 customers near the University of Arizona area after storm-damaged equipment was repaired.

Flash flooding is reported in some streets in Nogales and portions of southeast Tucson.

The Santa Cruz River reportedly is running high and the Nogales wash is overflowing into many streets.

National Weather Service meteorologists say the storm is moving north and could hit parts of the Phoenix metropolitan area by late Monday afternoon.

Arizona's monsoon season begins every year in mid-June and runs through the end of September.
