KINGMAN - Heavy rains and gusty winds hammered the Kingman area Saturday afternoon, resulting in rainfall totals measured in inches for the area north of Interstate 40.

As of 7:15 p.m. Saturday, Mohave County rain gauges had recorded 2.72 inches of rainfall at Airway Avenue and the Mohave Wash, 2.52 inches near Northern Avenue and Route 66, and 2.40 inches near Gordon Drive and Route 66.

Downtown totals were closer to three-quarters of an inch of rain.

The deluge appeared to test the limits of Mohave Wash at a number of locations before the rain stopped and water receded.

"Vehicles cross Bank Street near Kingman High School just before it was closed off to traffic late Saturday afternoon" and, "I'm proud of our population! This article isn't about someone being rescued from a running wash!"

Then why are those drivers taking a risk in the first place?

A word of advice to motorists, "DO NOT ENTER WHEN FLOODED" which is why the road was later closed!

Joe Blow might also like to know that the current Bank St work was mostly all ADOT and County.

Actually if you read the article and look at the photo, this is the area of Bank St. that has not been redone. Design of roadways always takes drainage into consideration. It would be nice if people educated themselves instead of just spouting negative things, just a thought.

Mother Nature does once in a blue moon remind us she is the boss and we do not control everything in this big old world we live in at her mercy!

Our crack Kingman City Engineering Department did such a marvelous job "engineering" this project. The City Council should FIRE the entire department for incompetence.

Bank street? Ever since I've lived here, I understood that Bank street was just a dry river bed that we used temporarily as a street!
(Tongue-in-cheek!)

I drove down Bank Street around 5 on Saturday. It was not fun. In fact, it was probably its worst in all the time I have driven down Bank since living here. I know they did roadwork on Bank to improve the road but improve seems to be missing after driving through all that. Can the road crews do something else to alleviate the man made river that is Bank when it rains?

I wished we in the southwestern portion of Golden Valley would get some of that rain. We only got a tiny bit the other day. Only enough to dirty up the windshield of the truck.
