In the US, the flood flooded the canyon: there are victims and injured
The tourists were rescued by helicopters.
In the United States, flood waters flooded a canyon near the Utah-Arizona border. Two men died as a result of the storm.
Three groups of tourists had to be rescued by helicopters at once. At least 11 people were released from the cold floodwaters, reports the Associated Press.
“Kane County Sheriff's Lieutenant Allen Alldredge said the first man found dead was among a group of three headed south to Lees Ferry across the Utah-Arizona border. Another man in the group was rescued and taken to the hospital, where he was treated for hypothermia and bodily injury,” the statement said.
On Monday, March 13, a woman phoned law enforcement officers and said that her husband had not returned home from a hike he went on last week. And on Wednesday, March 15, on the border with Arishchona, the body of the second deceased was found, who had previously been identified as missing.
The water level in the canyons rose due to a storm that swept the western part of the United States over the weekend of last week.
Earlier, we reported that a teenager disappeared in Transcarpathia, who was returning home from the forest during the flood. Dozens of people searched for the guy, but as a result they found him dead.
