    (HURRICANE, Utah) - Hurricane City received a large amount of rain this morning which initially caused a lot of standing water in several areas of the community. This did not cause any substantial traffic related issues.

    We had one weather related vehicle accident which was a single vehicle that slid off the roadway at 2800 West State Street. There were no reported injuries.

    Roadway Closures: 1150 West 200 North has been closed due to a large amount of water coming down gulls wash. Old Highway 91 has been closed by Harrisburg due to water in the wash.

    We had a large amount of mud on 600 North 2000 West, city crews moved that very quickly.

    We received reports of flooding in the area of 2050 South 160 West. This is a residential area that sits at the base of a cliff. Waterfalls have caused a large amount of water and debris to travel down 2050 South and into the subdivision area. Hurricane City Public Works and Fire Department responded to remove the debris and divert the water. Sandbags and sand were provided and youth volunteers from Hurricane High School helped fill the sandbags. The sandbags have been placed in areas to divert the water away from the homes.

    We have had reports of flooding in one garage and one residence that had water approximately 1 foot up the side of the residence. We have not been able to confirm the level of damage on this home.

    We are encouraging residence to please plan and prepare for any potential flooding. If you are having flooding and need assistance please contact dispatch at (435)627-4999. We are also recommending that when you travel, please slow down and be cautious travel through large poles of water.
