7/12 evening update on Diamond Creek Road

Rain continued to come down throughout the day in Peach Springs today.
The village of Supai experienced significant flooding and about 200 residents were evacuated by helicopter this a.m.

Grading and dozing machinery from Diamond Creek Road was relocated over to Rd 16 to help Supai access, so repairs to Diamond Creek Rd will be delayed.

Best estimates from the Hualapai River Runners today is that a minimum five days will be needed to recover the bottom two miles to the Diamond Creek beach. (Mileage may vary)

Boaters will need to push on to Pearce Ferry until at least Monday, 7/16,
as Diamond Creek Road will remain closed until recovered.
