Two newly installed water gauges near the Grand Canyon hopefully will give the members of the Havasupai Tribe more time to prepare for evacuations in case of a flood.

A team of workers finished installing a pair of flood gauges 20- and 45-miles upstream from the village in the bottom of the canyon during December to provide more accurate information about the volume of water flowing through the 3,000 square-mile watershed.
