Tropical Storm Ivo expected to bring more Ariz. storms

PHOENIX -

Parts of Arizona are expected to be hit with scattered severe storms and possible flooding thanks to moisture from Tropical Storm Ivo in the Pacific.

Some parts of Arizona saw as much as two inches of rain early Saturday morning.

In Surprise, a vacant home was struck by lightning and caught on fire near Cotton Road and Greenway Road.

Forecasters say the state should see storms around Saturday afternoon with periods of heavy rain.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash-flood watch for much of Arizona on Sunday because of the severe storms.

A tropical storm warning remains in effect for the Pacific coast of the peninsula from Punta Abreojos to Cabo San Lucas, and for the Gulf of California coast of the peninsula from Loreto to Cabo San Lucas. A tropical storm watch is in effect for the Pacific coast of Baja California north of Punta Abreojos to Punta Eugenia.

    Reports of a 16-foot-long exotic snake slithering around New Jersey's largest lake are apparently a suburban legend or the snake just isn't hungry.
    A 16-foot-long exotic snake reportedly slithering around New Jersey's largest lake is apparently a suburban legend. Or the snake just isn't hungry. The state has stopped looking for the reptile after scientists failed to find any evidence of it in Lake Hopatcong and traps baited with chicken were left untouched. Three unconfirmed sightings this month of a snake, perhaps an anaconda as long as 16 feet, raised concerns among visitors and swimmers.
