A powerful thunderstorm blasted through Las Vegas and nearby communities Friday evening, flooding streets, toppling trees and trapping tourists inside casinos.
Torrential rains and 70-mph winds also knocked out power in more than a dozen locations, including Primm, the town that sits on Interstate 15 at the California-Nevada border.
About 50 people had to evacuate from one condominium complex because of fallen trees, gas leaks and a loss of electricity. They took shelter at Desert Pines High School, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The National Weather Service declared a flash flood warning for Las Vegas and surrounding areas for Sunday afternoon through Monday evening.
