A major downpour brought significant flooding to Las Vegas for the second time in several weeks, washing out roads and sending waterfalls of rainwater into the city's famous casinos. 

A heavy storm at the end of last month saw floodwaters coursing through many parts of the city and multiple casinos reporting significant water damage. 

Images and videos flooded social media on Thursday and Friday, meanwhile, showing the soaking results of another major downpour there. 

Power outages were also reported in some areas, with several thousand customers reportedly out of power.
