( Las Vegas, NV )  A strong storm system moving into southern Nevada from California has people living in the area of last summer’s flooding concerned.

That’s the extreme northwestern part of the Las Vegas valley, specifically the neighborhoods around Grand Canyon and Grand Teton, which were besieged by torrents of raging water after 3 inches of rain fell on the Carpenter1 burn area of Mt Charleston.

The Regional Flood Control District has been in the process of removing tons of debris from the Kyle Canyon Detention Basin in preparation for the project designed to prevent such flooding in the future. That involves the construction of underground piping to keep stormwater from overflowing into the nearby residential area.

The National Weather Service in Las Vegas has posted a Flash Flood Watch until 10pm Friday for the Carpenter1 area on Mt Charleston where up to 2 inches of rain might fall.
