    (HURRICANE CITY, Utah) - At approximately 6:05 PM first responders received a report of a large amount of water flowing down 2050 South in the Angel Heights area. There were reports that mud and water were flowing down the street.

    Hurricane City Police Department, Hurricane City Fire and Rescue, and Hurricane City Streets Department prepared sand bags and placed them in several locations to prevent homes from being flooded. We have no reports at this time of any structure damage or major flooding of residences. A few homes received a small amount water in their basements. Officers patrolled the washes and assisted with shutting down the following roadways, 2050 South Angel Heights, 1850 South Angel Heights and 1150 West due to the level of water traveling down the wash.

    We appreciate the hard work by those first responders and the Hurricane City Street Department. City Streets cleared gutters and drains which helped alleviate the water flow.

    We would like to thank all those citizens for their assistance and patience during this incident.

    Patience is correct spelling.

    Patients means ill people.
