GRAND COUNTY, Utah — Utah weather officials are warning southern and eastern Utah residents of half-dollar size hail and gusty winds Sunday afternoon.

The National Weather Service of Salt Lake City initially issued the warning to last until approximately 5:30 p.m. but has extended it.

“We have extended the Severe Thunderstorm Warning for the storm currently over Enoch,” reads the NWS tweet. “This storm is also producing gusty winds and very heavy rain that will cause areas of standing water. Do not drive into flooded roads!”

The Grand County Sheriff’s office also warns residents to immediately move into an interior room on the lowest floor of their building.

“Lightning is one of nature’s leading killers. Remember, if you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by lightning,” reads the sheriff’s office Facebook post.
