The damage in the small town of Enoch, just a few miles from Cedar City, is turning out to be worse than first reported.
On Half Mile Road in Enoch, every single house on one side of the street was hit hard by flash floods. Water burst through fences all the way down the street, sending water into homes. Folks who live in the neighborhood lost a lot, but they're still managing to find a silver lining as they work to clean up the damage.
A big cleanup project began in Tooele City on Monday after flash flooding damaged dozens of homes and many businesses.
Some homeowners near Randolph spent the entire day cleaning up after loads of mud and rocks filled their basements following a heavy storm over the weekend.
As Utahns dig out from the mud and muck following Sunday's heavy storm, it begs the question: who is going to pay for it all? It is a sad reality that, unfortunately, a lot of homeowners don't realize until it's too late — flood damage isn't part of their home insurance coverage.
A woman was rescued from a Tooele County home that was flooded during Sunday's severe weather.
Severe weather affected areas all across the state of Utah on Sunday. In Cedar City and nearby Enoch, rain turned roads into rivers, flooding homes. In Tooele and Salt Lake City, cars drove through flooded intersections.
A Utah Highway Patrol trooper said he drove into a wall of dust as one of the first on the scene of a deadly dust storm that took the lives of eight people.
Generous community members in Cedar City made sure flood victims had food, clothing and housing after Monday's storm displaced around 200 people.
Hundreds of volunteers converged on one neighborhood in Cedar City — helping homeowners remove, repair and clean damaged and dirty furniture and belongings — after flooding impacted the area.
