(KSL News) Heavy rainfall caused flash flooding in the town of Tropic, Utah.

According to the National Weather Service, more than five inches of rain fell in the area in a 24 hour period between Friday night and Saturday night.

This caused a river to overflow its banks and turned roadways into streams.

Several callers to KSL say that basements are flooded and propane tanks are floating downstream.

The National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Central Kane County on the Paria River.

The Weather Service expected the floodwaters to continue flowing through Kane County, possibly reaching U.S. Route 89 and the Arizona border around daybreak, Sunday.

Residents in and around the Paria River drainage were advised to beware of floodwaters throughout the night, as more rain was expected.
