Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A flash flood warning remains in effect until 1:45 p.m. as heavy rain pummels Southern Nevada.
Flash flooding impacted washes, low water crossings and on area roadways.
Flooding shut down several roads in Henderson, and made travel difficult through roadways across Las Vegas and North Las Vegas.
Intermittent thunderstorms and lightning also spread through the Valley.
Heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected to continue throughout the evening and into Thursday.
Multiple crashes were reported around the Valley on Wednesday morning. One of those was a semi-truck that overturned on the southbound Interstate 15 exit to southbound U.S. 95.
