Flooding traps 2 in Arizona home

NEW RIVER, AZ - Two people are trapped inside a home in New River, Ariz., which is completely surrounded by muddy flood waters.
Video showed two people leaning out of a window. At one point, one person was waving a white piece of material in the air hoping to be rescued.
Tuesday morning storm systems in Arizona dumped inches of rain in a matter of hours, forcing washes to overflow. Emergency crews have been responding to many water rescues throughout the day involving people trapped in vehicles.
