“Tornado-like” winds, heavy rain and flashflooding damage home, force evacuations in Las Vegas
A severe thunderstorm packing 71-mph wind gusts battered the Las Vegas Valley, forcing evacuation of 200 units at the Atrium Garden Condos in east Las Vegas, said a report.
The storm caused heavy damage in several areas, “stranding drivers in flash floods, snapping power poles and tearing trees from the ground.”
“Temperatures dropped more than 20 degrees Friday due to the storm. The weather service reported 109 degrees early in the afternoon and 83 degrees at 10 p.m.”
Power outages across the valley affected at least 33,000 customers, NV Energy said.
Meantime, a new daily rainfall record of 0.22 inches was set at McCarran International Airport, breaking the previous record of 0.17 inches set in 1951.
