Severe Thunderstorms Delay Flights in Las Vegas

In some areas of the Southwest on Tuesday severe thunderstorms raged through and caused flight disruptions in Las Vegas, as well as disrupting traffic and causing flooding throughout the city.  Cars in a university parking lot were up to their headlights in water and school buses made the way slowly through waterlogged streets.  Just prior to 2:00 pm, nearly an inch of rain fell at McCarran International Airport, prompting the National Weather Service to issue flash flood and severe thunderstorm warnings.


At the airport, both departures and arrivals were affected.  Airport spokesperson Linda Healey said that both arrivals and departures were delayed as the airport halted fueling operations due to lightening strikes in the area.  There were also power outages and many people stranded in cars.  The region normally gets 4.5 inches of rain per year, but this storm system has them on track to beat that average.
