(Las Vegas, NV) A record rainfall struck the Vegas Valley yesterday afternoon, causing problems on the roads and in the skies. The National Weather Service says over an inch of rain fell, the most for any September day since records were first kept in 1939. The downpour flooded a number of streets and shut down the 215 Beltway between I-15 and Warm Springs Road. A portion of East Charleston was also closed to traffic. Flights were delayed out of McCarran during the storm. Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast today.
