LAS VEGAS -- Monday's flash flooding left many on Mount Charleston running out of options. The storm not only wiped out the main road into Rainbow subdivision, but left more than 100 homes without water.
The water was back in service Wednesday and Rainbow Canyon Road once again opened to traffic. Parts of the road had collapsed in the flooding posing a danger to drivers. Although the road is now passable, there is still a lot of work to be done. In all, 10 homes in the area were damaged.
From Allison Sosa's back porch, Monday's powerful waters raged as dark skies loomed overhead. She is already forming another plan for the next time Mother Nature hits.
"It's raining right now. So it makes me think of moving the car out of the driveway and onto Kyle Canyon until the storm passes. At least if we had to get out, and had no power or water again, we could still get to our car," Sosa said.
