Monsoon Rain Floods Las Vegas Casinos In Apocalyptic Scene

Apocalyptic scenes of monsoon rain in Las Vegas shows water pouring into the casinos on the Strip and submerging streets.

It was the unhearded character of this ununsual wonder of nature that made it spectacular and scary at the same time. Monsoon in Las Vegas!

Extreme rainfall hazards caused water to enter the casinos on the legendary Strip as well as to flood big parts of the city.

Videos posted online showed water pouring from ceilings at Caesars Palace and Planet Hollywood resorts on the Las Vegas Strip two days ago. Water also swamped the carpet at the Circa Resort & Casino after rain started sipping in through their sportsbook video wall.

In Downtown scattered power outages even stopped the people from being able to experience the popular downtown Fremont Street Experience Viva Vision Light Show.

At least 16,000 households were left without electricity on Friday night according to the Las Vegas Review Journal.

While only 0.3 inches of rain was registered at the airport, more than one inch already fell only one mile away at the University of Nevada.

Heavy rain relatively quickly creates flooding in Las Vegas since the water doesn’t drain off into the desert terrain.

In addition to that, there were strong winds peaking at 71 miles per hour causing trees to collapse.

One of them fell on an apartment complex displacing over 30 people who live there. The American Red Cross therefore opened up a temporary shelter for displaced residents.

Firefighters rescued at least seven people and received more than 330 calls in a single night. According to official, no casualties and injuries were reported.
