(Las Vegas, NV) — The Vegas Valley is cleaning up after major thunderstorms flooded streets, stalled vehicles and made for hazardous driving. The National Weather Service says more than an inch-and-a-half of rain fell in Sin City yesterday, breaking an August 22nd record set back in 1949. Some areas of the valley received even more rain, while lightning forced delays at McCarran Airport. Slick roads resulted in a number of accidents, but no serious injuries. Forecasters say there’s a slight chance of more rain today, but the valley should dry out by the weekend.
