Pools of rain water collect in several residential areas of Tuba City and Hopi villages in Moencopi areas. One of the areas of heavy rain collection was near Dodson Pond in uptown Tuba City. Mud sludge overflowed many sewer lines and household water lines, busting pipes and causing much water damage. Rosanda Suetopka Thayer/NHO
