|Clouds over Laughlin and Bullhead City from Needles Hwy in Laughlin|
Monsoon activity caused heavy rain, thunderstorms, strong winds and even some hail in the Tri-State area Tuesday.
When we headed down to Casino Drive the clouds were starting to form. We got a few pictures but left before the bulk of the storm, runoff and flooding happened.

After being there about an hour one set of Thunderstorms passed through and we left when there was a break. We were unable to turn at Bruce Woodbury at the corner of Casino Drive (across from the Edgewater). It was already closed due to the rain/run off. We were home by the time most of the heavier rain and storms hit the area.
According to Meteorologist Andrew Gorelow of the National Weather Service Las Vegas Weather Forecast Office, Bullhead City received between 1.5 and 2 inches of rain and Laughlin received three-fourths of an inch.
