Communities in Southern Utah are recovering after heavy rain flooded several streets. Emergency coordinators said there was only minor property damage reported, and they account that to homeowners being prepared and listening to the many warnings. Flash flood alerts have gone out several times in the past few weeks, and on Wednesday those alerts were very real. A low-lying rainstorm poured close to an inch of rain in a very short period of time over the county. Pete Kuhlmann, Washington County Emergency Services director, said the rains caused flooding in several neighborhoods. Angel Heights in Hurricane got the brunt of the storm, but the neighborhood is pretty much back to normal aside from a little dirt and some sandbags.
