Flood warning remains in Las Vegas after mountain rain
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A flood watch remains in effect in the Las Vegas Valley after heavy rain in nearby mountains sent torrents of water across some roads.
No injuries are reported Monday after officials reported 18 swift-water rescues Sunday in areas north and west of the city.
The Nevada Highway Patrol says State Route 157 to Mount Charleston is closed in Kyle Canyon due to flood damage.
NHP Trooper Jeremie Elliott says U.S. 95 has reopened north of Horse Drive after crews cleared rocks and flood debris.
The National Weather Service says a flash flood warning remains in effect through 9 p.m. Tuesday in the Las Vegas Valley due to monsoonal moisture from the remnants of Tropical Storm Ivo.
The warning includes the areas of North Las Vegas, downtown Las Vegas and Summerlin.
