SALT LAKE CITY — A short but powerful storm blew through Salt Lake County Sunday afternoon, dropping an impressive amount of rain that caused flooding in some areas.

Photos sent into the KSL newsroom show flooding in West Valley and South Salt Lake. Other photos show quarter-size hail that fell in West Jordan.

Firefighters in West Valley told KSL they responded to several flooding calls, but most of the problems cleared up pretty quickly.

The National Weather Service issued a significant weather advisory for central Salt Lake and northern Utah counties Sunday afternoon, which was in effect until 3:15 p.m.
