CBS News - For the second straight week, millions in the Southwest are threatened by dangerous flooding. The flood threat continues through the weekend and stretches from Arizona into the Great Plains. CBS News’ Carter Evans reported this morning from Nogales, Ariz., where people are still recovering from last week’s deadly flooding -- and where, overnight, heavy rain pounded the state, causing streams to overflow. The remnants of Tropical Storm Odile were strong enough to cause flash flooding and send water raging down city streets not equipped to handle the sudden downpour.

Arkansas Business - People are starting to move back into the part of an Arkansas subdivision evacuated last year after a 2013 pipeline accident. About 22 of 63 homes in the Northwoods subdivision of Mayflower were evacuated after ExxonMobil’s Pegasus pipeline ruptured last year, spilling about 210,000 gallons of oil in the neighborhood 30 miles northwest of Little Rock, the Log Cabin Democrat reported. A handful of residents have returned while others have decided to participate in a program that allows them to sell their homes to ExxonMobil at market price. ExxonMobil says four homes have been sold and five others are for sale. The company is working on placing more homes on the market.

AZ Central - There were gray skies, ominous-looking tropical clouds and even the occasional burst of rainfall, but the line of storms predicted to march through the Valley as Hurricane Odile moved out of Baja California Norte remained at bay Tuesday. But weather experts and city officials cautioned that even if the worst of the rain falls in southeastern Arizona today — as the most recent models predict — the remnants of the hurricane should still concern Valley residents, who could see some localized heavy downpours.
