inundated with water by torrential rain, Las Vegas was slammed with more flash floods on Thursday night.

In a video posted on social media, floodwater could be seen flooding one casino and turning a parking garage into a swift-moving river.

You’re not going to believe this, but I’m not sure if it’s pouring more inside @PHVegas or outside, said one Twitter user, Sean Sable, who shared video of precipitation pelting down into the blackjack tables of Planet Hollywood’s casino.

Chris Angel, a magician and illusionist, was scheduled to perform at roughly 9:20 p.m. PT (12 a.m. Friday ET), according to Sable.

Water could be seen gushing through a parking garage in another video.

Social media users also posted pictures of flooding near Def Con 2022, a yearly hackers’ event taking place at Caesars Forum in Paradise, Nevada.

The National Weather Service in Las Vegas tweeted on Thursday night, “What a storm!”

The Harry Reid International Airport in Paradise, Nevada, reportedly received at least 0.58 inches of rain during the storm, according to the weather service.

The meteorological service reported, “This takes our monsoon season rainfall total to 1.28′!”

The Las Vegas Valley was under a flood advisory from the weather service until 12:15 a.m. local time earlier (3:15 a.m. ET). It advised against driving across flood waters and mentioned risks such as persistent lightning, high winds, heavy rain, and unwelcome flooding.

It follows cleanup work to repair the harm caused by significant rainfall in Las Vegas last month.

Videos that were uploaded online during those downpours also demonstrated water dripping from ceilings at the Planet Hollywood and Caesars Palace hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. Rain began pouring in through the sportsbook video wall of the Circa Resort & Casino, where water had also overflowed the carpet.
