RENO, Nev. (AP) — Douglas County residents are digging out after flash flooding left up to 3 feet of mud and debris in some neighborhood streets south of Carson City.
The Sierra storm that dumped more than an inch of rain in less than a half an hour also triggered the first tornado warning in the Reno area in six years.
The National Weather Service says a series of funnel clouds were spotted north of Sparks Monday afternoon but none touched down and no serious damage was reported.
Flooding closed several major roadways in the eastern Carson Valley Sunday, including Fish Springs, East Valley and Johnson Lane.
Carson City public works manager Darren Schulz says several residents had significant mud in their garages but there were no reports of mud actually sliding into homes.
