Deer Creek Flashflood Video

Hi all, Jim Burton has kindly posted a brief video of a July 27, 2007 flash flood at Deer Creek on the Colorado River in Grand Canyon on Youtube at:

The rain on the camera lens impacts the quality of the video somewhat, but it is still an awesome video.


Enjoy, Tom

While checking out that video, I watched another flash flood video worth seeing from Australia: this literally turns into a landslide and takes out a road. There looks like a recirculating wave that forms to the right of the road at the end too

ooohh that stuff is scary....nice vids. The aftermath of the deer creek was reported to be insane.....(water quality downstream). Chasing those things is scary as hell too. Thanks for sharing.

Everythings BIG in the land down under!

Saw some sweet flash flood action in Canyonlands last October. It had been raining a bunch off and on for several days, and right as we get near the confluence, some unnamed side canyon just goes off with probably 200-300 cfs. You could see the water even pouring off the rim, which was a good 1500 vertical feet above us, in a 300+ ft waterfall, and just rage through a half mile of class VI chocolate whitewater down to the river. Those rains were enough to really kick up the river too. The week or two before, Cat was only flowing it's normal October 8-10 grand, and by the day of our launch, had spiked to a good 40-50 level. Big ass water late in the year = fun.
