Costly Storm Clean Up Underway

(Las Vegas, NV) — Cleaning up the mess left from Sunday’s thunderstorms could cost as much as $500,000.

That’s according to city officials, after debris and flooding left some roads in the northwest valley a mess.

A number of drivers became swamped while driving through flooded areas, but no injuries were reported.

The storms have shut down or restricted some Las Vegas Valley roads.

State Route 157 is open only to Mount Charleston residents, but could fully reopen on Thursday. You can still get to Mount Charleston by using State Route 156.

Drivers heading to Laughlin will need to use alternate routes, due to flooding on U.S. 95 at Route 163.

A flash flood watch is in effect until 9:00 tonight. A chance of thunderstorms is expected for the rest of the week.
