<b><i>Flash floods...</b><br></i>
Heavy rains on Monday, Sept. 29, flooded some streets and parking lots in Moab, covering the pavement with thick layers of mud and rocks and causing local creeks and streams to overflow their banks. Several business owners on South Main Street reported that floodwaters had entered their buildings, and at Village Market (pictured) the parking lot quickly filled with muddy water during the storm that dropped almost 2 inches of rain in some parts of the county. Grand County Sheriff Steve White said city and county road crews spent most of the day on Monday removing debris from the intersection of 400 East and U.S. 191 after more than 6 inches of mud flowed down Jackson Street onto the highway. “We’ve seen some storms like this before, but I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite that bad,” White said. The Grand County Emergency Management Office said Tuesday that anyone in need of sandbags can obtain them by contacting the Grand County Sheriff’s Department at 435-259-8115. Photo by Zane Taylor

"What was done here on this subject turned out to be wrong. ...
