Monsoon 2017 ending, but cleanup continues

Posted: Updated:

Monsoon 2017 is officially ending this weekend, but the mess it left behind is still being dealt with on the east side.

Crews are still working to repair units at the Woodbridge Apartments near Speedway and Pantano. A number of trees came down during a microburst on August 10th, destroying some of the buildings.

And it’s not just the apartment complex. That microburst damaged a number of homes on the east side, as well as a wall on the Eastern Hills Aquatic Club.

Crews were working Friday afternoon to repair that wall.

“[The wind] blew it right down, almost 85 feet of six foot high wall came down,” said Daniel Pena of Rustic Adobe Masonry. “I had to pull out all the foundation, pour new foundation, and build the wall with new material and vertical re-enforcement.”

The microburst lasted just moments, but officials say it could be months before everything is fixed.
