TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Monday's monsoon storms brought a rare event to Southern Arizona, flooding.

Overflowing water closed the port of entry in Nogales for several hours, thankfully the port was reopened last night and remains so on Tuesday morning. Mud and debris had to be cleaned up by crews before officials reopened the port and allowed vehicles through.

The flooding and debris did not stop there though, Sahuarita was another area hit hard by flooding. Sahuarita Road near Alvernon was closed on Monday for a short time as water ran across the road. Officials shut the road down to allow time for the water to recede.

Across town several residents were also without power, due to the monsoon and there are more on the way.

Officials would like to remind drivers to be careful on the roads and to avoid moving water.
