Deputies: Flooded area keeps residents stranded

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Streets and at least one home are flooded near Sandario and Snyder Hill Roads.

Portions of Marstellar Road and Snyder Hill Roads are closed until further notice.

Pima County Sheriff's deputies say it appears the Brawley Wash is to blame for flooding at least one home and spreading water over property and roads.

They say a family called 911 at about 11 o'clock this (Tuesday) morning to say their home and cars were flooded.

Deputies asked a nearby Border Patrol helicopter for assistance to find out where the water was coming from. 

They had also called out Tucson Water and other water utilities that serve the area to see if maybe one of their facilities was to blame.

The utilities told deputies their facilities were secure.   

Sheriff's deputies have their command center on scene at Sandario and Snyder.

Deputies says residents who are trying to get home should go to the command center for further information.

Some residents are stuck in their homes and others are being escorted to their homes if it's safe to do so.

Deputies have called out the Red Cross to assist with shelter, if necessary, and with food and water for people who can't get home.
