Ambulances attacked in alice springs area after tornado warning
The number of vehicles damaged in the storms is unknown at this point, but the city’s downtown core has been the subject of intense activity since Tuesday.
Floods and power outages were reported around the city, but the storms weren’t the only problem — there were large fire damage. A fire broke out on a commercial building on a street in downtown Phoenix Sunday night and has been burning since. Fire crews responded and put out several fires, including one on the third floor, and a fire on the sixth floor, said Fire Capt. Ryan Hockett of Phoenix police.

The Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau reported 874 traffic-related injuries, including one motorcyclist killed and three severely injured. At least five more people were treated for injuries ranging from minor burns to severe dehydration from the smoke damage in downtown Phoenix, said the bureau’s chief, Andrew Seeler.
People outside the downtown Phoenix area were also injured and a fire was still burning outside the city’s downtown shopping center early Monday.
The Phoenix Fire Department said at least 29 people were transported to local hospitals with smoke inhalation.
The Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau said 15 additional hotels had to be evacuated after smoke engulfed a single one, while two other ones were in n우리카지노eed of repair.
The city is working closely with the National Weather Service to evaluate the damages, Seeler said.
A tornado warning was issued for parts of south-central and central Arizona in anticipation of a possible twister and a hail of 2우리카지노 to 4 inches, with the possibility of tornadoes to a depth of 3 to 5 feet, in areas near the Mexican border near the town of Casa Grande.
The most dangerous storm since the historic storms of August 2001 has been a tornado that took out several buildings on Phoenix’s west side around 2:15 a.m. Sunday, according to officials.
“I’m really concerned for our neighborhood,” said Mary Schaffer, 63, of Phoenix. “We know it’s not safe. We know it’s not going to be easy right now.”
The tornado warning was lifted for Tempe around 12:45 a.m. Sunday, and a tornado warning was in effect for the city from about 5:15 a.
