It isn't the first time people have been killed when flash floods swept through so-called slot canyons, which are formed by the wear of water in rock and are typically significantly deeper than they are wide.Here's a look at other deadly flooding incidents in slot canyons in the U. during the past few years: Seven people were killed in Utah's Zion National Park in September 2015 when they were tapped during a sudden flash flood while hiking.
Hornung noted that the National Weather Service had issued a flash flood warning about 1 1/2 hours before, 'but unless they had a weather radio out there, they wouldn't have known about it.We've just been lucky something like this hasn't been this tragic.'Steve Stevens, a volunteer fire fighter with Water Wheel Search and Rescue, said visitors should stay away when there are flash flood warnings.'The clouds over on the other side of the mountain can be dumping buckets, and all of a sudden there's a wall of water coming through that just wipes out everything in its path,' said Stevens, who has lived in the area for 20 years. In 2015, seven people were killed in Utah's Zion National Park when they were trapped during a flash flood while hiking in a popular canyon that was as narrow as a window in some spots and several hundred feet deep.In 1997, 11 hikers were killed near Page, Arizona, after a wall of water from a rainstorm miles upstream tore through a narrow, twisting series of corkscrew-curved walls on Navajo land known as Lower Antelope Canyon.There is no cell phone service out here.'The swift waters gushed for about 10 minutes before receding in the narrow canyon, Hornung said.'They had no warning.They heard a roar, and it was on top of them,' Water Wheel Fire and Medical District Fire Chief Ron Sattelmaier said.
