Weather Stories

The water’s splashing merrily down the East Verde River and Salt River Project’s reservoirs on the Salt and Verde River remain 72% full — barely below the same time last year.

The Salt River Project will start releasing water into Payson’s C.C. Cragin pipeline this week — and probably continue pumping through October, said SRP spokesperson Patricia Likens.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Brandon Caserta took off his protective helmet, walked beneath the spinning rear tail rotor of an a HM-60S helicopter at a Virginia naval station — and jumped into the air until the spinning rotor ended his torment.

A hot, dry fall will likely lead to more of the same this winter, according to the National Weather Service — thanks to global warming and an increasingly serious La Niña.

The 24,000-acre Bear Fire in the White Mountains near Clifton is 50% contained.

The Bootleg Fire in Southern Oregon has burned more than 550 square miles and sent a plume of superheated smoke and debris up to 45,000 feet.
