Students stranded in Moapa; part of I-15 washed away

Heavy rain pummeled Moapa on Monday, leaving nearly 100 students stranded and part of Interstate 15 closed after sections of the freeway washed away. Northbound lanes of I-15 were closed at the Moapa exit, about 50 miles from Las Vegas, Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Chelsea Webster said, and southbound lanes were closed near Bunkerville.
