Flash Flood Warning in Clark County: Residents Urged to Exercise Caution

By TheNevadaGlobeStaff, September 20, 2023 6:17 pm

Clark County, Nevada, finds itself under the grip of a flash flood warning issued by the National Weather Service, which remains in effect until 6 p.m. this Wednesday. As heavy rainfall sweeps across the region, officials have advised residents to stay vigilant and prepared for potential flooding in low-lying and poorly drained areas.

**Causes of Flooding**

The primary cause behind the flash flood warning is excessive rainfall triggered by thunderstorms, as detected by Doppler radar. The Las Vegas weather service has reported heavy rain in the area, leading to minor flooding that is either ongoing or expected to commence shortly within the advisory area.

As of now, up to 1.25 inches of rain has already fallen, exacerbating the risk of flooding in multiple parts of Clark County.

**Areas at Risk**

Residents and businesses in several areas within Clark County are currently under threat from the looming floods. Among the regions that should remain cautious and vigilant are Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas, Paradise, the Strip, downtown Las Vegas, Green Valley, Enterprise, East Las Vegas, Spring Valley, Sam Boyd Stadium, Southern Highlands, Anthem, Mountains Edge, Nellis AFB, Summerlin, Aliante, Lone Mountain, The Motor Speedway, and Centennial Hills.

Clark County residents are urged to take these precautions seriously and cooperate with local authorities to ensure their safety during this flash flood warning.
