Eight dead, five missing in Hildale flash flood

A sad event after a group of people fell victim to a powerful flash flood in southern Utah. Heavy rains in Washington County swept a road away, taking their cars along with it.

As always, please exercise the utmost caution around flash floods, and areas prone to flooding after any amount of rain fall.


Eight people had died and five remained missing Tuesday morning, the day after an SUV and a van were washed off a road during a flash flood in this polygamous Utah-Arizona border community.
