By the time the storm moved across the border into California, it had dropped more than an inch of rain at the base of the mountains in suburban Henderson.
And even though the city was hit the hardest, the fire department reported just three stalled cars in flooded intersections by 9 a.m.

The drivers rescued weren’t hurt.

Meanwhile, the Las Vegas fire department reported no rain and no emergency responses.

The weather service said southern and south of Clark County could see more thunderstorms.
