PHOENIX (AP) — Residents of the Phoenix area were greeted Sunday morning by toppled trees and debris-littered streets.

Powerful thunderstorms brought heavy rain and strong winds to the region Saturday — flooding roads, delaying flights and leaving thousands without power.

The Salt River Project utility says 800 people are still without electricity — down from 51,000.

The Arizona Public Service says 7,000 customers were without power, but progress was expected in the next few hours.

No injuries have been reported, but authorities conducted two water rescues Saturday involving stranded hikers.

The National Weather Service says Phoenix received a record 1.6 inches of rain with some spots getting more than 2 inches.

Other southwest storms caused flooding in Nevada, but authorities say the damage wasn't as bad as earlier in the month.
