ST. GEORGE — Several roads including a major interstate were flooded in Southern Utah Sunday while a flash flood warning was issued by the National Weather Service for Cedar City and Enoch through 6:45 p.m. Sunday.

At about 4:20 p.m. the NWS released a statement telling residents in Enoch to get to high ground, calling it a “life-threatening” situation. Interstate 15 between Cedar City and Enoch has been intermittently closed and officials say to expect major delays in the area. They also say that if your vehicle stalls while trying to ford flooded areas, to abandon the vehicle as rising water may engulf the vehicle and sweep it away.

A reverse 911 has gone out to residents in Enterprise asking for help filling sandbags.

This story will be updated as conditions warrant.
