Intense storms caused the Dysart Drainage Canal north of base to overflow Oct. 20, 1992, which resulted in more than $3 million in damages to base housing. The base flooded because of land subsiding 17 feet due to long-term pumping of ground water used by the base and local farmers.

Heavy rains flooded Luke Air Force Base July 1, 1951. Residents of nearby Glendale took in military families whose quarters were damaged by flooding. The main gate, lower left, is now under the Maj. Troy Gilbert bridge that connects the east and west sides of the base. Bldg. S11, above middle, still in use today, was the headquarters building from 1941 to June 13, 2001.
