Flooding continued in the Coconino Estates neighborhood in west Flagstaff on Aug. 7, 2022.

More heavy rain over the Pipeline Fire burn scar brought another round of flooding to Coconino Estates in east Flagstaff Sunday.

Highway 180 was closed for about an hour amid water and debris flows from Schultz Creek.

Flooding in the area has become the norm in recent weeks during a heavy monsoon season. It’s expected to continue until long-term mitigation is built.
