Record rainfall in pictures: Flash flooding swamps Utah
A day after heavy rainfall spurred flash flooding across multiple regions of Utah, only eastern Utah remains under a flash flood watch on Thursday. But the record rainfall left plenty of damage to cleanup.
Flash flooding closed I-215 in northern Utah. It overflowed the bed of Coal Creek in Cedar City and swamped homes, garages and yards in Delta. In fact, Millard County officials closed school for the day in Delta on Wednesday.
