A major storm hit Sin City Thursday night — leaving much of it under water.
Las Vegas put a flash flood and severe thunderstorm warning out as heavy rain inundated the area, flooding streets, airports, parking lots, and the entire Strip where some of the world’s most famous casinos and hotels are located.
Despite the storm’s severity, Las Vegas Fire Information Officer Tim Szymanski told The New York Post there were no injuries reported at this time.
As the weather catastrophe unfolded, many took to Twitter to share the shocking scenes.
Meteorologist and reporter Bree Guy posted a video of the storm and flooding streets in a residential area.
