Three flash flood warnings popped up after strong thunderstorms developed. Two of those warnings focused on Wayne County, where reports of up to an inch of rain fell and caused flash flooding at Capitol Reef National Park.
Sulfur Creek is normally a dry wash, but after the storms, water and mud were rushing through the creek.
Video captured by ABC4 Utah viewer Han Johnson shows the creek filled with water.
