Water streams across the highway near Death Valley as ‘unprecedented’ rainfall causes flash floods

Park officials said severe flooding caused by “unprecedented amounts of rain” prompted the closure of all roads in and out of Death Valley National Park (DVNP) on Friday, August 5. As many as 1,000 people, including 500 visitors and 500 park staff, are stranded in the park, according to officials. “No injuries to staff or visitors have been reported,” DVNP officials said. “Nearly sixty cars, owned by visitors and employees, were buried under several feet of debris at the Inn at Death Valley.” The Transportation Authority said footage released by Caltrans District 9 shows water flowing through State Route 190 near Death Valley.
