Overnight, the skies roared and mother nature unleashed rain over many neighborhoods and streets.
Cars were driving with extra caution on the streets near Boulder Highway and Russell Road, trying to avoid any flooded areas. A typical scene during flash flood season.
"July, August and September is when the monsoonal moisture comes up. It can explode with little or no warning. We saw that yesterday out in Henderson and in the northwest part of the valley. The intensity was there, it was good but it wasn't great," said Gale Fraser with the Regional Flood Control District.
According to Clark County officials, the current drain system is a success.
"Over 570 miles of channels and underground storm drains reduce the flood risks to the community. They are also designed for more intense storms," added Fraser.
Now the concentration will be cleaning up the minor debris left behind like the dirty basketball courts at Butterfly Park in Centennial Hills.
Although the Las Vegas valley does not get a large amount of annual rain, there are still some hidden dangers out there.
"Some of the streets in the west side of town are very steep. Cars will roll really fast. People need to make smart decisions and let that water find it's way from the urban street network into our regional system," added Fraser.
