A storm that rolled through the Parker area Sunday night left a big impact, with power still off for over 2000 APS customers Monday morning.

Downed trees, damage to awnings and buildings, downed power poles and service disruption were all reported by residents and visitors in the town of Parker and the Parker Strip late Sunday. By Monday people were assessing the damage in their neighborhoods.

Parker Accounting Services, a local business, had severe damage to its building. The roof was partially torn open and the rooms inside exposed to the elements, with drywall covering desks and paperwork scattered.

The storm brought blowing dust and running washes, with flash flood advisories issued for the area by the National Weather Service.

The storm hit the town of Bouse, too, with reports of damage surfacing there. Members of the Colorado River Indian Tribes reportedly will need to conserve water after power to its system was disrupted. And in Lake Havasu City, boats moored at the shoreline were pushed around in the storm, some of them getting submerged.

For updates from APS, visit outagemap.aps.com. Updates about the BIA system, which has reportedly suffered considerable damage in the valley, will he added to this article when available.

  110. Lost Lake Resort hit hard by the storm. Power went out last night around 8:pm it’s still out. Restoration my be weeks away. Trees torn out and awnings filled the roads this morning.

  111. it’s bad my fellow peeple. I want some gift cards MISsus wedemier. MR Drake I want a 22 percent raze soon too and that is fiar for rascal flats. Mr trump we need you and gods bless.

  112. We were on the lake in Parer just before the storm hit. We were watching the lightening storm from afar and all of a sudden there were giant swells and water coming over the boat and drenching us. We barely got out of the lake, it was very hard to get the boat onto the trailer with all the waves and lightening crashing around us. It was scary and exciting at the same time. We are so glad we did not have a slip because those boats did not fare as well.

  113. Was there any damage to the boats in the dock at the Blue Water Casino? We have our boat docked there, we live in California near 29 Palms and cannot reach anyone as of yet to find out.

  114. We were at Riverland Resort, it blew the awning of one mobile home. Power went out at about 9:18 pm. No power till 4:48 am Tuesday morning.
