Several Las Vegas casinos were captured on camera Thursday due to storm damage. Multiple casino videos posted throughout social media.
One Facebook account captioned the video saying, Meanwhile Downtown Las Vegas Circa casino (stadium swim) is currently flooding from a 2 hour storm.
Another social media account shows a guy sitting at a casino machine while water poured from the ceiling. The flood damage didn’t seem to bother the guy so much. He continued to play his game.
The Weather Service in Las Vegas warned of wind gusts approaching 70 mph, urging Twitter followers to “Take shelter now!” Las Vegas Fire and Rescue tweeted that it responded to 330 calls for service, mostly related to weather, and rescued seven people in swift water.
Multiple Las Vegas intersections flooded.
Emi Gross, a burlesque showgirl street performer, was working on the Strip when the hard rains started to fall.
“It got crazy,” the 19-year-old said. “I’ve never worked as a showgirl in weather like this.”
After about a half-hour of downpour, she says her bosses called her back to the office, a few miles off the Strip. “We booked it to the car” Gross continued, “We were in the garage at the Venetian and we still had to have the windshield wipers on because the rain was blowing in sideways. We could hardly see.”
“I’ve lived in Vegas my whole life and have never seen anything like this before,” she said.
By Friday afternoon activities seemed to go back to normal. Nevertheless, workers share videos of Las Vegas Casino employees attempting to shove water from the floors to remove any further damages.
