An Arizona RV park owner has been working day and night to keep from losing his business, family and neighbors after flooding waters roared through the community of Beaver Dam last week, according to a report in The Spectrum.
Bill Evans, owner of the Beaver Dam RV Park, has assisted in finding shelter, food and even clothing after what he termed a “torrent of water” ravaged communities along an area called the Arizona Strip.
Flood waters stripped residences away from the bank, including the homes of Evans’ mother and sister downstream, nine RV sites from the park, one motorhome and several homes upstream of his businesses, which also include a bar and convenience store.
According to Neil Young, Beaver Dam resident and president of the town’s Ripple Association, a total of seven residential buildings from stick built to mobile homes, were carried off in last week’s flood, with another seven homes left with severe mud and water damage.
The flooding was part of a dangerous storm system that battered Southern California before dropping torrential rains in Arizona and Utah.
