WICKENBURG, Ariz. — A monsoon storm has dropped up to two inches of rain on the town of Wickenburg in about a one-hour span.

That has led to flash flooding in some areas Thursday evening.

A section of U.S. 60 in Wickenburg was closed in both directions at milepost 110 for almost an hour due to flooding, but was reopened by 7:45 p.m.

Wickenburg is located about 54 miles northwest of Phoenix.
