CEDAR CITY -- The Cedar City area is cleaning up after heavy rains caused flooding and knocked out power to thousands of homes.
The National Weather Service says that 2.25 inches of rain fell at the Cedar City airport Saturday, breaking the daily record of 2.1 inches set in September 1967.
The Deseret News reports that water rushed down streets and into homes, but there was no word on how many residences were affected.
Police Sgt. Jerry Womack says Womack says the rains likely were the cause of a collapsed roof of a business. No one was hurt.
The storm left stop lights dark and rushing water forced some temporary road closures.
The paper reports that the storm knocked out power to about 5,700 homes in Cedar City and Enoch. Power was restored after about two hours.
