LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Clark County Public Works planned to send cleanup crews throughout the Las Vegas area after the latest bout of severe weather in southern Nevada.

Thursday's rainfall event broke a record for Oct. 11. The previous record was set at 0.12".

On Thursday, rainfall was reported at 0.78".

The intense storm left flooding on low-lying roads, which, in turn, left mud, rocks and other debris for motorists to travel through on Friday once the water receded.

According to Clark County, cleanup will focus on several neighborhoods throughout the valley, mainly in the southeast and northwest parts of the city.

Those areas include:

  • Sahara Avenue at Winterwood;
  • Abarth St., Alfa Cir., Anglia St., Clubhouse Dr., Bentley Ave., Ferrai Ave.;
  • Silverado Ranch from Decatur to Dean Martin;
  • Windmill between Las Vegas Blvd. and Bermuda;
  • Hollywood from Sahara to Bonanza;
  • Sandy Valley Road at Kingston;
  • NW Area (Grand Teton, Durango, Elkhorn, Lone Mountain).

Clark County also said it expects the northwest end of the city to have the longest time for cleanup. Cleanup may go on through Saturday, the county added.

The weather event also left an uncommon occurrence, especially for Las Vegas – hail.

Residents reported hail being strewn about neighborhoods in southern Nevada.

FOX5 meteorologist Les Krifaton reported a 40 percent chance of showers for Friday.
