Flood advisory in place for east, southeast areas of Las Vegas Valley

A flash flood warning issued by the National Weather Service earlier Sunday has been replaced with a flood advisory for the east and southeast areas of the Las Vegas Valley.

The warning was issued just after noon Sunday as intense storms moved from the Seven Hills area toward Nellis Air Force Base in northeast Las Vegas. The weather service replaced the warning with a flood advisory valid until 4 p.m. Heavy rains were reported in the Silverado Ranch area and near Henderson Executive Airport about 12:30 p.m.

Lighter thunderstorms rolled into the valley Sunday morning.

The heaviest rain from the morning fell in the west side of the valley, said a spokesman for the weather service. There was widespread sprinkling across the city, and temperatures stayed under 100 degrees until at least noon.

Several trees in the city were struck by lightning during, according to the Las Vegas Fire Department. None of the incidents have led to major fires.
