(KSL News) Residents are cleaning up from weekend storms that caused headaches for homeowners throughout the state. And, a flash flood watch is expected later today for the western two-thirds of the state.

A small creek overflowed in Park City causing water to gush through city streets, and causing damage to anything that came in its way.

Dale Nelson/Landlord: "The force of this thing tore this completely off, left this dead bolt hanging in the hole, and pulled it open. I've been pushing the mud as much as I can out and down."

In Farmington mud came sliding down the hillside once again, running into streets, garages and yards. But this time it missed causing serious damage to homes.

And in Cedar City residents were left with a "stinky" mess as sewer water backflowed from floor drains and toilets.

Homes also flooded in Cedar Fort in Utah County.

The storms caused approximately 350 Utah Power customers in Orem and another eleven hundred in Pleasant Grove to go without power.

Utah Power spokeswoman Margaret Kesler says the Pleasant Grove power outage was caused by lightning, and that power was restored by ten p-m.
