More than 18,000 Rocky Mountain Power customers experienced outages as snow brought down tree limbs and power lines in many locations, according to the company.
Among other crises brought on during the storm, South Salt Lake experienced heavy flooding on a busy road at 3300 South from 300 West to 500 West, prompting the road to temporarily close. A snow plow caught on fire at Emigration Canyon around 3000 East, officials said. The driver escaped uninjured but the canyon remained shut down while crews worked on the fire. Salt Lake City Fire Department also received calls about power lines downed by heavy snow around the valley.Comment on this story
According to KSL meteorologist Dan Guthrie, rain and snow activity was expected to wind down through Friday night. Mostly sunny skies were expected for Saturday in most valleys, Guthrie said, with a chance of some scattered showers in the mountains. "So get ready for the weekend, temperatures are going to be very comfortable," he said.
