UTAH COUNTY (ABC4 News) – Residents in Loafer Canyon are being evacuated due to a flash flood Thursday evening.

Utah County Sheriff’s Office said so far there have been no reports of injuries. Officials did not have information about potential property damage.

Loafer Canyon is located in an area between Elk Ridge and Woodlands Hills in Utah County. These areas were impacted by 2018’s Bald Mountain Fire.

The National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for the area effective until 9:45 p.m.

Elk Ridge Mayor Ty Ellis lifted the evacuation order for residents later in the night. He said residents may return to their home, but they must park in the driveways. At this time, Loafer Canyon Road is only open to residents.

This is a developing story. More information will be posted as it becomes available.
