LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Monsoon storms from Wednesday have cause some serious flooding for residents in one southwest neighborhood.

People living in neighborhoods on Fort Apache south of Blue Diamond got hammered by storms yesterday, as flood control run-off basins couldn't hold all the water. Storm run-off reported as deep as two feet kept residents in their homes overnight, and as of Thursday morning, roads still had water running through them.

The semi truck and hatchback are both immobile atm.
