Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Water from the storm that hit the northwest part of the valley on Thursday, added to the misery of another storm that soaked the east.
There weren't any golfers on a section of the Desert Rose Golf Course Thursday because fairways had become waterways.
Nearby homeowners like Bryan Justus and his family were having flashbacks. They watched as the water rose higher, minute by minute. Justus said it was a frightening sight, so soon after the last terrible storm.
For a second time in just weeks, eastside neighborhoods were slammed. Streets were flooded and filled with debris. Homeowners spent much of the day sweeping water out of their yards. Broom trucks were everywhere, clearing intersections and clogged storm drains.
As they dealt with the aftermath of the rain that soaked Northwest Las Vegas and flowed downstream overnight and Thursday morning, many watched the skies and worried about a possible round two.
Justus said, "Yeah, it's a concern. I'm just staying around to make sure if it does we can take precautions."
By 8 p.m., those fears came true.
Eastsiders got hit with a squall that flooded streets and sidewalks that had been cleared just hours before.
Justus said he had never seen anything like it.
Like many of his neighbors, Justus can't afford a repeat. He doesn't have flood insurance and as they throw away furniture destroyed by the last floods, he and his neighbors all face the possibility, their homes have toxic mold.
