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.
