Thunderstorm Causes Flood at Yuma Self-Storage Facility

Posted in News

A storm that rolled through the Yuma, Ariz., area on Saturday damaged Wellton Hills Self Storage and Nursery, causing several thousands of dollars in damage to the property. Facility owner Dan Ellis told The Yuma Sun that he has fairly extensive flooding damage, though his storage units were not affected.
The storm eroded most of the soil along 400 feet of the southern end of the property, Ellis said. Debris such as soil, tires and barrels from nearby residences wound up in a retention basin he built.
The severe thunderstorm blew through Wellton/Tacna, Ariz., with hail along with significant flooding, dust storms, heavy rains and wind gusts.
