Storm slams Lake Mead, floods streets in Boulder City

Boulder City, NV (KTNV) -- The storm that slammed Lake Mead on Thursday, created a mess for Boulder City residents living up the hill.

David Simmons shot video of the water, rocks and debris that came rushing down Isabel Street and Robinson.

Simmons said, "We see it coming in over the lake and it hit the mountains up here behind us and all the waterfalls started falling, so we knew something was coming."

Debris from the storm shut down Lakeshore Drive and damaged parts of the Las Vegas Boat Harbor so badly that it was shut down for safety.

The storm lasted about half an hour.

Clean up took a tad longer, but what Boulder City neighbors called "River Isabel" was mostly clear by late afternoon, and Lakeshore Road and the Las Vegas Boat Harbor should be good to go on Friday.
