<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

    FILE - This June 17, 2014, file photo shows President Barack Obama speaking at the Democratic National Committee's (DNC) annual Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) fundraiser gala in Gotham Hall, in New York. His name won't be on the ballot, but Obama will shape the midterm elections like no other. For Republicans, he is a punch line who fires up conservatives and reaches dissatisfied independents. And some Democrats won't even mention his name. It's left Obama able to do little more than raise money ahead of an election that will define how he spends his final two years in office. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, File)The Koch brothers-backed super PAC is adding to its TV spending over the final two weeks leading up to the midterm elections, dropping an additional $6.5 million into six competitive U.S. Senate races. The ads will link Democratic candidates to President Obama.
