In Connecticut, storms caused major damage. People there are now dealing with extreme flooding and cracked roads.
Firefighters say they’re having an issue with people trying to drive through the standing water.

To the northeast of Hartford, lightning hit a utility pole and caused a fire and downed wires.

Rain and flooding in Las Vegas

It was also a storm-filled weekend in Las Vegas. For many, the heavy rains and flooding was a welcomed relief to extreme heat. For some, the damage left behind is less than ideal.
