For people living in the neighborhoods north of Flagstaff that have flooded repeatedly this summer, their lives have been drastically altered. Every time they hear thunder, they grab their most prized possessions and find a safe place and hope for the best. But some of their anxiety has been alleviated by volunteers. Arizona Public Radio's Laurel Morales has this story.
Flagstaff, AZ – The community that lives at the base of the San Francisco Peaks on the northeast side of Flagstaff has had a rough summer. First it was the threat of fire and now water. Since the monsoons began the neighborhoods have experienced two devastating floods. And they're anticipating more. Arizona Public Radio's Laurel Morales takes a tour of the flooded neighborhoods.
Flagstaff, AZ – More than a hundred people turned out Thursday to express their views about snowmaking on the San Francisco Peaks. After years of litigation and approval by the U-S Supreme Court the Forest Service gave the Arizona Snowbowl permission to make artificial snow earlier this month. The agency has asked the city of Flagstaff to recommend what type of water to use. Arizona Public Radio's Laurel Morales reports.
Flagstaff, AZ – With nearly 10 percent unemployment, there are a lot of adults out looking for work this summer. And that's making it a lot harder for teenagers to find jobs. It's estimated that 26 percent of teens can't find a job this summer, in part, because they're competing with adults. Arizona Public Radio's Janice Baker reports on how some northern Arizona students are finding and not finding summer work.
