Extreme thunderstorms caused flooding that isolated some homes in Garfield County on Monday.

An extreme thunderstorm swept through the Sand Wash and Lime Kiln area approximately 5 miles northeast of Panguitch, causing severe flooding in agricultural areas, homes and livestock, according to a press release from the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office.

GCSO spokeswoman Cheryl Church later said several homes were isolated, but none were flooded.

Church also said no injuries were reported and no livestock or roads were lost due to the flooding.
