Havasupai hit again by flood - drinking water lost
The Havasupai Tribe was hit by floodwaters again last week, knocking out the water supply for the village. Floods appear to have been hitting Havasu Creek more frequently in recent years, although most of the problems have been downstream impacting trails, campgrounds and visitor facilities. This time, newspaper reports say that Supai Village was hit by the flood.
A Phoenix-area foodbank sent most of their bottled water to the village as a stop-gap effort.
