LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Intense thunderstorms swept through the Las Vegas area on Tuesday, flooding washes, delaying flights, snarling traffic and prompting helicopter rescues of stranded motorists in water-filled intersections, authorities said.
Staudenmaier said the rainfall amounts put the region on pace to exceed the 4.5 inches of rain it normally gets in a year.

The deserts in the usa get a lot more rain then youd expect. Not much compared to normal climates though. Problem is the ground is so dry that it cant absorb rain quickly at all. So any downpour quickly causes flash flooding.

This is Vegas- its a dog eat dog world out here.
Mostly the drivers from California who act like morons on the road- that and the thousands of illegals we have here.
