One rafter is dead, another rescued, after a flash flood in the Grand Canyon river

Arizona has been barraged by storms this week, with one such tempest causing a flash flood in a Grand Canyon river. A group of about 30 rafters saw their camp, and two travelers washed away on Wednesday evening. 

Of the two who went missing, one was found dead in the frigid water, while the other person was alive at the abandoned campsite. 

“Our hearts [are] broken that people on the trip lost somebody, people at home lost somebody,” said the executive director of the Grand Canyon River Outfitters Association. “That matters more than anything else.”

Seven more people on the trip were airlifted for medical attention, although the nature of their injuries was unclear. 

What else do we know about the flash flood right now, and how does it compare to the other crazy weather in the region right now?
