‘They had no warning’: 9 from Phoenix family dead in Payson flash flood, 1 still missing

Maria Raya’s 26th birthday was Sunday. Phoenix in July was searing hot.

So Maria and her family headed to Arizona’s high country for what should have been a peaceful weekend splashing in a cool mountain stream.

Instead, their trip turned deadly when a “40-foot-wide black wave” of rainwater, mud and debris tore through a narrow canyon and swept the family away on Saturday.
