Flood fears arise for Mount Charleston residents as rain looms

By Bryan Callahan. CREATED Aug 10, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The possibility of more rain has people up on Mount Charleston on edge.

Many of the residents said they've done as much as they can to prepare, but at this point they are more concerned with their power.

About 400 people lost power just after 4 p.m. on Sunday. You could hear backup generators running at many of the homes.

Other residents were outside checking to see if another storm was in the area. They are keeping their eyes on the sky to the south.

Several of the homes that have received flood damage over the last year, now have sandbags protecting the key area.

Most of the residents know there is very little they can do to prepare for flooding if it comes down as hard as it did two weeks ago.

Residents are also concerned about some of the homes, walls and structures that have been condemned by the county.

They are also worried about what could happen to them if another flood comes through before repairs are made.
