Palm Springs police had already closed Vista Chino, Indian Canyon Drive and Gene Autry Trail where they cross the wash.

And in the east valley, 66th Street was closed between Van Buren Street and Jackson Street, while Box Canyon Road from Interstate 10 to the All American Canal was closed in the Mecca area.
