Flash flooding is a leading cause of natural disasters in Utah, according to the Utah Division of Water Resources. The state experiences flash flooding several times yearly, usually during the summer months. Intense rainstorms can cause flash floods, blocked storm drains, and overflowing rivers and reservoirs.
