More than 100 stranded by flooding at Ariz. state park

COTTONWOOD, Ariz. — The sunny skies that greeted the opening of Saturday’s Verde River Day changed dramatically before noon when a downpour canceled the 26th annual event at Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood, the Verde Independent reported.

Some attending Verde River Day said it took more than an hour to drive from the park to Main Street in Cottonwood, while more than 100 people ended up stranded in the park for several hours because of flood conditions, the paper noted.

There were about 80 vehicles in line waiting their turn to cross the wash.
