Be Safe! Continued Flooding in Cedar City, Utah (Pics)
Storms have been hitting the southern Utah area for a few days now and they are forecasted to be here for the next week. Today around noon a storm and flood warning was issued for the southern Utah region.
The ground is already wet and the rain fell so fast that the streets started flooding very quickly. According to The Weather Channel Website flooding could continue through Saturday August 19th.
This picture was taken near Zaxby's and 200 north. So much water that could make it down the drains without making a fountain in the middle of the street.
Cedar City Hospital - Intermountain Healthcare had flooding all the way around it. See the following pics:
More flooding with a street fountain across the street from North Elementary.
Too much water in a short amount of time makes it so that drains are overwhelmed and the streets flood instead of drain. The next picture is at 545 N 300 W Cedar City.
The Iron County School district sent out texts warning parents that streets were dangerous and to be careful during pick up. Also the inclement weather might effect bus schedules. The following pics are are near Bicentennial Park:
