A more organized presentation of the damage.

Side story on Odile

The remnants of Hurricane Norbert totally surprised Phoenix and basically brought
it to a standstill. When the remnants of Odilie took a similar path they took
all kinds of preventative measures and ended up getting very little rain.
Even with all of the fancy satellites and weather information there was both
a failure to predict the record setting rains and the failure to correctly
predict the second event. A "we didn't expect that" and a "we didn't expect that",
makes one wonder about our overall ability to forecast anything. True forecasting
should see what is not expected, isn't that the idea?
