The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch Wednesday that continues in effect until Thursday night. Keeping right in step with that notice, some flooding occurred in Enoch Wednesday evening, and Highway 91 was closed for a couple of hours due to the flooding, according to information from Iron County Emergency Services. The road is now open again.

As lightning lights up the sky and rain comes down, some of our readers are out braving the storm to capture the action on camera. Enjoy!
