The desert has been saturated this monsoon season as yesterday marked the 20th day in a row of measurable rain in the Las Vegas valley. This shatters the record of 12 days in a row of rain.
Chris Stachelski, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said Wednesday marked the 20th consecutive day in which at least a trace of rain had been recorded somewhere in the Las Vegas Valley or its immediate surrounding area.
That nearly three-week stretch of rainy days far exceeds the previous record of 12 straight days of rain, in both 1967 and 1998.
Some of the storms have brought extremely heavy rains that have flooded roads and washed away just about anything not nailed down. And some things that were.
The destructive power of the weather has been on full display in Southern Nevada in the last few weeks. But with the right roofer and the right roofing system you can help protect yourself and your investment.
