ARIZONA, USA — Monsoon storms rocked the state early Thursday morning with heavy downpours, gusty winds and power outages across the Valley.
The National Weather Service said Arizona saw nearly 20,000 lightning flashes between 11 p.m. and 9 a.m. Thursday morning.
Early-morning drivers and several roadways also faced complications from the storms as standing water forced the Arizona Department of Transportation to put multiple closures in place, according to the department's Twitter page.
Storms will continue Thursday, with severe weather expected in Flagstaff, Prescott and Kingman through the afternoon and evening.
Arizona has seen its fair share of severe weather. Here is a compilation of videos from various storms across the Grand Canyon state.
