Some northwest Las Vegas homeowners are dealing with flood damage and pointing fingers after Monday's intense thunderstorms.
Residents in a section of the Monaco Isle development (near Desert Inn and Cimarron roads) say clogged storm drains and the design of a neighborhood privacy wall caused water to back up into their living rooms, kitchens and family rooms.
They say they don't have flood insurance.
They're blaming the county for not clearing the drains -- and their home builder for the design of the wall.
County officials say the early-morning storms that dropped torrents of rain nearby overwhelmed flood-control channels for a while.
