DISASTROUS RAIN Heaviest Downpour of Which There is Any Record Here Yuma was visited Monday by the greatest rainstorm in her history. Following quite heavy showers Sunday nirht and early Monday morning, there was a veritable cloud-burst about niue o'clock and for more than two hours an almost solid sheet of water descended; it continued intermittently, however, until noon or after. During the times mentioned 4.01 inches of water fell, and all but one-sixteenth df an inch between 8:30 o'clock and 11 o'clock Monday forenoon. When it is considered that the average annual rainfall for Yuma is less than 3 inches -it may be understood that many were un prepared for such a deluge and suffered thereby. Serious damage was done to the stocks of a number of mer cantile firms by the water pour ing into basements and cellars. Business men and their assist ants jumped promptly into the breach and fought with pick and shovel or any. old way to divert or stem the floods, opening cul verts and drains and building temporary levees with sacks of flour, sugar and coke, in their endeavor to save their goods, and many thousands of dollars' worth were thus saved. Had the heavy downpour occurred at night, Mr. Sanguinetti states that his loss would unavoidably have been from twelve to fifteen thousand dollars by the water pouring into his basement from Second street the greatest source of Hood troubles to the business section. Among t-ho heaviest losers were Spittler & Huffman, E. P. Sanguinetti o.nd J. M. Molina. Second street was a raging torrent, water sweeping from front to back door through. some of the buildings. Main street vied with the Gila in flood time, the water sweeping over the sidewalks in miniature waves. So far as distress was concern ed from which there was no es cape, the lowlands cast of Main street and north of Second bore the brunt of the deluge. The poorer classes of people inhabit ing the adobe huts and shanties in this section were driven from their habitations by the water, and in many cases the houses either collapsed or were under mined and ruined.. Water pour ed in at doors and even over window-sills, setting afloat the furniture and household posses sions which were finally removed to dryer spots. Many of these flood ridden people were given refuge by Billy Dunne in his group of buildings back of The Tavern. Every express wagon and cart in town was pressed into service, and not until nightfall was all the property, removed from the submerged district. In Rincon alley the water was waist deep. West of Main street the most serious damage was that done to they Levy home oh Madison av enue, occupied by B. C. Hey I and family. Two feet of water covered the iloors of the house, soaking and ruining carpets and furniture to the amount of 5o0. The cement sidewalk in front was broken through in two plac es to permit the escape of the water: bin, even then adequate drainage was impossible. Late in the afternoon the walls had settled to such an extent that the building was declared unsafe. The family moved into one of the Molina cottages on Main street. During the day the Colorado river rose 2 feet. There were washouts of magnitude west of Yuma. Five trains with over 300 passengers were maroonod here for eighteen hours. The greatest railroad damage report ed was between Ogilbee and Hanlon Junction. At one point 900 feet of track was washed out. There were also- washouts east on the desert, one being reportr ed several miles in extent. Reports from the valley indi cate that considerable loss will be suffered by the farmers in the damage to hay and grain crops. All the valley roads were under water and much havoc was wrought to irrigating ditches in filling up and washing. The ruin storm in intensity Why not flake your Yuma County?

Why not? j and volume of water that fell was the greatest "this section ever experienced, and extended, in about equal severity from Dome on the east to Ogilbee on the west,a distance of fifty miles, and from the international boun dary line on the south to Lagu na dam on the north, a distance of more than thirty miles.
