LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Fallen trees and wind damage during Friday night’s storms forced at least 45 residents to evacuate an apartment complex in the southeast valley, the Clark County Fire Department said.
One person had non life-threatening injuries when weather caused structural damage to at least three buildings at 2680 Atlantic St., according to Fire Chief John Steinbeck.
A temporary evacuation shelter was set up by the American Red Cross at William E. Orr Middle School, 1562 E. Katie Ave.
Three engine companies, two ladder trucks, one rescue unit totaling 25 members from the department and two chief officers responded, Steinbeck said.
About 10 trees fell on roofs and cars and into the road causing damage to the apartment complex.
