NORTHERN UTAH -- A monster of a storm moved into parts of northern Utah Saturday afternoon, packing wind, lightning and lots of rain.

That may have led to several small rock slides that blocked parts of the road through American Fork Canyon. One rock fell on a teen girl hiking to Timpanogos Cave. She should be OK.

At Deer Creek Reservoir, callers told KSL that about 15 boats capsized in the storm. Everyone was safe after being plucked from the water.

Around the same time, several hikers got stuck on Ensign Peak above the Capitol. Rescue crews were called to help them down.

Showers may continue for Saturday night and Sunday. [CLICK HERE for KSL's forecast]
