July 16, 2018

Forecasters with the National Weather Service are warning residents in southern Nevada about the potential for flash flooding this summer since the monsoon season is expected to be wetter than normal.

A new forecast shows seasonal rain and thunderstorms in the Southwest are expected to be 40 percent above average and that the Las Vegas Valley is likely to receive about a third more rain than usual.

The Clark County Regional Flood Control District is in the middle of a project to install drainage tunnels in the northwest valley that should help with any flooding.
