Thunderstorms packing high winds and heavy lightning blew through Las Vegas on Saturday for a second consecutive evening, prompting a severe weather alert.
Saturday’s storms hit about 9:30 p.m., leading the National Weather Service to issue a flash flood warning for the valley. The warning expired at 11:15 p.m.
The storms dropped rain and produced high winds and lightning. But Las Vegas Fire & Rescue reported shortly after 10:30 p.m. that it had received no weather-related emergency calls.
In contrast, Friday’s storms displaced dozens of residents, snapped a number of trees, triggered a lightning-sparked residential fire and caused water to pour into at least two Strip properties — Caesars Palace’s casino area and Gilley’s Saloon, Dance Hall & Bar-B-Que at Treasure Island.
