HAPPENING NOW: Redington Road closed at MP 2

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Redington Road is closed at MP 2 on Saturday afternoon.

Word of the closure was issued Saturday at 2:15 p.m. in a tweet by the Pima County Sheriff's Department. PCSD are urging hikers in Sabino Canyon and Bear Canyon to head down as well because of flash flood risks striving from more monsoon rain.

Tanque Verde Falls is experiencing increased water levels in the area as well.

In a statement released Saturday, The Pima County Sheriff's Department said the rain from Friday's storms have caused water levels in the Tanque Verde Falls area to increase three times the level they were last week when Search and Rescue crews rescued 17 people from the area.


PCSD said more storms are expected Saturday which will increase the risk of flash flooding in the area. PCSD said Sabino Canyon is also at an increased risk of flash flooding on Saturday as well.
