Photo Courtesy: Daniel Snyder (KSL News) Major flash flooding is pounding Utah's Dixie again tonight.

Lost Creek, which flows into the Virgin River, is way out of its banks. Hardest hit is the Staples subdivision on the Kolob Canyon road. At least six homes have been heavily damaged.

Witnesses tell us the water was all the way up to the ceilings at one point.

Several animals have been lost, but luckily, no people have been hurt.

On the other side of Washington County, the Santa Clara River is flooding. The bridge on the south side of Gunlock Reservoir is closed.

Three homes were flooded and at least one RV was damaged. Even the frogs are looking for cover.

We have a crew in St. George tonight, and we'll have live reports on the flash flooding there tomorrow morning on Eyewitness News from 5 to 7 a.m.
