RENO, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- According to the City of Reno, crews are cleaning up damage near 4th St. and Stoker Ave. where there high water and flooding occurred Monday afternoon.

Crews armed with sandbags are currently assessing the damage.

During the incident, the low air pressure from the storm blew off the lid of a man hole causing a vehicle to drive into it. There was damage to the vehicle but not the person driving the vehicle. There was debris to clean up in the streets but no other property damage.  According to City or Reno official Matt Brown, crews should be finished cleaning up the scene shortly. The section of road is open to traffic both ways.

Sandbags were already on scene, because this same blowout happened 3 prior times over the past year, muddying the Sunset motel at 4th/Stoker, and one time the water was about 5 ft. deep on 4th (in the usual low spot). But U didn't hear about this on the TV or RGJ, nor about how mud from the I-80 overpass area caused this mess. Though some of this is unavoidable, like along the cliff alongside Stoker/Mountain view Cemetary, those sandbags weren't deployed after sitting outside the motel for the past 9 months. This is where your "city sewer' fees get wasted.
