This week parts of Southern Utah have been hit hard with heavy rains and flash flooding. The National Weather Service has issued a flood watch today for most of Southern Utah around Dixie and Zion National Parks. These storms can be extremely dangerous, especially around slot canyons and dry washes where a flood can hit hours after rain fell miles away. This incredible video by David Rankin illustrates that point quite well.
