VIDEO: Jetskiing Through Flooded Vegas Streets (Language Warning)

(WARNING: Some faint explicit language might be heard during this video.)

Though it is far from a recommended activity during any flooding situations, two men can be seen riding jet skis through flooded Las Vegas streets during Tuesday's storms, starting near Sahara and Sloan.

The men unload jet skis from the back of a pickup truck and ride through deeper waters until helicopters overhead appear to make them stop and find a new location multiple times.

Brown Haze Covers Southern Nevada

Brown Haze Covers Southern Nevada

A brown haze covered southern Nevada Thursday forcing Clark County to issue an air quality alert.

Clark County Air Quality Meteorologists issued the alert because of unhealthy levels of haze in the area. They looked at particulate matter readings in Boulder City and the Las Vegas valley. They have been deciphering whether it is smoke or dust. However, they have not had any reports of major wildfires in Arizona. So, they do not think it is smoke. At this point, they believe it is dust from Arizona where strong weather systems created big dust storms.  

Allergists and immunologists, like Dr. Joel Katz, recommend people with respiratory illnesses like asthma and emphysema stay inside until the dust is blown out of southern Nevada. Children and seniors should also stay indoors. They also recommend that normally healthy people not workout outdoors.
