NOGALES, SONORA, MEXICO (Tucson News Now) -

Our neighboring city south of the border is still reeling from recent monsoon storms. A week ago today, the roads of Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, looked more like raging rivers; sweeping cars away and flooding downtown businesses. 


Powerful thunderstorms caused havoc there and an estimated 51 million pesos in damage; that's nearly $4-million U.S. dollars. The "El Imparcial" newspaper reports the vast majority of that is street damage. The rain came down hard and fast with just over two inches falling in less than an hour on July 7.
