It was the wettest August day on record in Naples, Florida, on Monday when a record 6.73 inches of rain came pummeling down.
Most of the rain fell in only a span of two hours, with over 4 inches falling in just one hour. Streets and parking lots were flooded, while some roads had to be closed due to dangerous driving conditions.

Out West, almost an inch of rain (0.75) fell Monday in only about 15 minutes, causing flash flooding around Las Vegas. Roads and cars washed away -- with strangers desperately trying to save each other from these rushing waters.
In addition, a rare tornado sighting in Clark County, Nevada. The last time a tornado touched down there was in 2001.
This morning, in North Salt Lake, Utah, a landslide destroyed one home and forced more than 20 others to evacuate. This was all due to heavy rain saturating the soil on a hill above the neighborhood. The entire city remains under a state of emergency.
