SCOTTSDALE — A Scottsdale-area resort closed Aug. 11 because of storm flooding and damage is postponing its reopening.

The Talking Stick Resort and Casino on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community had planned to reopen Aug. 19 but now says it needs more time to complete repairs and replace damaged equipment.

The resort's announcement Friday didn't provide a new date for reopening.

The flooding forced hundreds of guests and employees to evacuate the resort's hotel and casino.
