Verde River AZ- is this the storm?

hello everyone i am sitting here watching the craziness that's about to happen on the Verde river... how high will it go??? is this the storm that finally clears out all the strainers and trees?? i am guessing things will go above 40k cfs, but im not sure thats enough to uproot some of the trees that have been growing in there for the last 25 years.... what do you guys think? will oar rigs once again float the verde?

I think the verde high flows might clear some of the Phragmites, but Iím not hopeful that it will clear many trees. I would love to see the verde river one year post 1993. After the 1993 high water (someone told me 203000 cfs into horseshoe lake) it was amazing how many trees were gone.I remember Oak creek was cleared of many trees post 1993. I think Oak creek peaked in Sedona at about 25000 cfs in 1993. Several years passed and the trees returned. Oak creek then had another high flow of 20000 and I donít think much changed.
