The National Weather Service says a dam has failed in northern Nevada, causing flash floods and life-threatening situations for residents near the Utah border. The weather service stated there were reports of at least 2 to 3 feet of water rapidly moving downstream with a chance the depth of water may increase as the dam continues to fail. The National Weather Service in Elko has extended the flash-flood warning through midnight Thursday. The weather service advised people in the area to move to higher ground and to avoid flooded roadways. Officials said most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Officials say there has not been a ton of damage but the railroad near the Utah border was affected.
