2 people died due to ‘restless’ monsoon-season flooding in Las Vegas

Some of the most famous hotels and casinos in Las Vegas were flooded because of the heavy rain. Two dead bodies were found after the rain stopped.



The torrential downpour that had submerged some of Las Vegas’s most famous hotels and casinos in floodwater became fatal.

The Clark County Fire Department said that emergency services and firefighters who were cleaning up a flood channel near Las Vegas Boulevard on Thursday night found a dead man’s body floating in floodwater.

On Friday, another dead body was discovered in a flood-control canal located close to the southernmost end of the Strip.

At this point, it is not possible to determine whether or whether the fatalities were caused directly by the flash floods.

The heavy rain that fell on Thursday evening flooded the casinos and restaurants that are located along the famous Strip. Video footage shows that some of the most well-known establishments in the city, such as Caesars and Planet Hollywood, were unable to prevent water from leaking through the ceiling.


As a consequence of the “severe monsoon downpour,” according to the Department of Public Safety in Las Vegas, emergency services were called out on multiple occasions.

In a statement, they indicated that there had been a total of three replies to reports of vehicles that had become stuck in flood waters. “There were no medical needs or patient transport necessary as all occupants were successfully evacuated to a secure location.”

The statement said that there were two more minor weather-related calls, one for a downed tree and the other for some ceiling damage at an apartment building.

Video shows that people eating inside at Caesars were showered with floodwater.


The National Weather Service said that this has been the city’s most “restless” summer monsoon season in the last 10 years.
