Back Yard Disappears- The raging Rillito continues to take its toll on neighboring property owners as its banks erode from rushing rain runoff. Here, the back yard of a home west of North Craycroft Road is swallowed up by the Rillito. Authorities managed to save a mobile home from the Santa Cruz River yesterday. January 14, 1993.

Land Grab- Residents watch the Santa Cruz River eat chunks of their land in the 6600 block of North Silverbell Road. The meandering path of the river endangered some home yesterday in an area dominated by mobile homes. January 14, 1993. Photo by Rick Wiley / Tucson Citizen.
At Work And Play- With a break between storms, road crews on North Camino de la Tierra yesterday hurry to reinforce banks and remove debris from the Rillito. Meanwhile, onlookers and joyriders have their day in the sun. January 11, 1993. Photo by Norma Jean Gargasz / Tucson Citizen.
