Arizona's latest monsoon storms leave thousands without power, cause severe damage

The Phoenix area and beyond saw more monsoon weather over the weekend.

Cleanup from the storms is underway Monday as the monsoon caused damage throughout the Valley.

State Route 87 is closed in both directions between Shea Boulevard and McDowell Road in Mesa due to downed power lines, the Arizona Department of Transportation said. There is no estimated time to reopen the highway.

A mobile home on the Salt River Pima Maricopa Reservation was flattened by a microburst in the area, with winds reaching up to 80 miles per hour, the National Weather Service said.

FOX 10's Steve Nielsen spoke to a woman who said her sister was inside the structure during the storms. Family members pulled her from the rubble. She is currently recovering in the ICU.

Thousands of people are still without power across Arizona, many of them in the Valley.
