Torrential downpours in Arizona caused a nightmare for rescue workers and tourists at the Grand Canyon.
Two hundred tourists had to be evacuated from the Grand Canyon via helicopter when two powerful weather systems unleashed flooding through the canyon. Some were forced to seek high ground as flash floods turned streams into rivers. T
he remote Havasu Falls area of the Grand Canyon, which is part of the Havasupai Indian Reservation, took the brunt of the storms.
The area is expected to remain closed for 7 to 10 days due to the severe flooding.
