Sept 11, 2012 made the history books in the Las Vegas area as it became the wettest Sept day on record as slow moving thunderstorms dropped 1.18 inches of rain in a matter of just a few hours. This caused significant flash flooding to creeks, streams, streets and even homes. Multiple rescues had to be carried out with cars stalled and swamped by flood waters with the fire dept responding to over 20 calls from motorists who were stuck in their car.

As much as 1.75 inches of rain was reported in Downtown Las Vegas.
