Cleanup crews have repaired 25 out of the 35 condos that were damaged in a Friday-night storm that ravaged the complex.
City of Las Vegas Building and Safety crews have been working with NV Energy, Southwest Gas, HOA and Atrium Gardens management to make the damaged condos habitable again, Las Vegas spokesman Jace Radke said.
The storm that swept through the complex located at 3516 Folage Drive, near Washington Avenue and Pecos Road, with 90-mph winds and torrential rain damaged about half of the complex’s condos and left uprooted trees, power outages and ruptured gas lines in its wake. Many residents were displaced, with a total of 42 spending the night in a shelter at the nearby Desert Pines High School on Saturday night.
Cleanup crews repaired 25 of the homes on Wednesday, but have struggled to return power to the remaining 10 condos, which suffered the most structural damage.
The crews will continue to work on the remaining homes Thursday, Radke said.
