The Phoenix metropolitan area was slammed by another monsoon storm, bringing overwhelming rain, strong winds and lightning throughout Sunday night.
The storm, which spanned from Payson to Tucson, rocked most of Arizona Sunday night starting at 9 p.m. The heavy winds and rain caused flooding and knocked down several power lines.

Thousands of residents were without power overnight as APS and SRP reported 50-plus outages in the Phoenix area according to their outages maps.
One power line was down in the Glendale area, striking the ground and causing sparking near a parked vehicle, requiring Glendale fire to respond for safety.
The National Weather Service issued a severe thunderstorm warning for Gila County and Maricopa County at 9 p.m., in addition to a dust storm warning lasting until 2 a.m. and a flash flood warning issued until 1:30 a.m. for the Phoenix area.
The flooding was so severe, it shut down southbound Interstate 10 at the Deck Park Tunnel for a short period of time.
Transportation officials advised drivers to slow down or avoid driving altogether.

The storms also prompted air traffic controllers to divert some flights bound for Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to airports in Mesa, Tucson and Las Vegas.
A Desert Canyon Golf Club experienced some extensive roof damage from the monsoon storm as well.
Luke Airforce Base in Glendale has reported the most amount of rain totals in 24 hours with 1.38 inches, followed by Thunderbird Road and Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale at .94 and Osborn Road and 64th Street in Phoenix at .91. These numbers are accurate as of 4 a.m.
In addition to the flooding in Phoenix, Gila County was hit with massive storms for the second day in a row. On Saturday, nine people were killed from flash flooding near Payson. The storms on Sunday night halted the search for a missing 27-year-old who was among the 14 who were swimming in Payson.
Viewer videos and emails came pouring into 3TV/CBS 5 of the torrential rain, flooding, lightning and more from the monsoon storm.
There is a chance of rain keep coming, with a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms throughout the day and a high of 99 degrees.
