LAS VEGAS (AP) - The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning after intense thunderstorms in mountain and canyon areas near Mount Charleston northwest of Las Vegas.

A bulletin issued shortly after noon Thursday warned of heavy rains amounting to nearly 2 inches in some places in the Spring Mountains.

It said flash flooding was expected in Kyle and Lee canyons, and said roads including U.S. 95, state highways 157 and 156, and Cold Creek Road.

The warning was expanded to include the Red Rock Canyon area about 25 miles west of the Las Vegas Strip.
