The 1970 Labor Day Storm caused more loss of human life than any other storm in Arizona’s recent history. In addition, many dwellings, roads, bridges, and other structures were damaged by the record flooding. The meteorological and hydrological features of tropical storm Norma, and the resulting damage to human, cultural, and natural resources have been documented and analyzed. Such analyses contribute to improved estimates of the magnitude and frequency of future storm and flood events, and assist engineers and planners in the design and location of new communities, drainage systems, bridges, dams, and other cultural features.
