  1. "He was safely removed from the tree after hanging on to a tree"

    Excellent reporting right there!

    …other than the fact that "All Highways In Nevada" didn't become rivers.

  2. All SIGNS of the END TIMES, Prophesied long ago as a

    warning to mankind. Know that time is getting short.

    ✨Jesus Christ wants to save you from the grips of he

    who is god of this world, Jesus died for us all so we can

    live, with Him in Paradise, Jesus is the only one who can

    save you. REPENT, seek the Lord while He can be found.

    Call upon Him while He is near Isaiah 55:6 believe in the

    life death and resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ as it

    is written in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 with all your heart, believe

    in the Gospel of Salvation, Romans 10:9-13 be born again

    in Christ and be saved.🙏🎺🕊❤💫🤴

  3. Let's see, a state where the corporate mafia runs rampant, where gambling is legal, where prostitution is legal and you wonder why an act of GOD is destroying your state? You deserve it.

  4. As a born & raised, currently residing NORTHERN Nevadan/Great Basin native, I can confirm that the rest of Nevada & most counties are FINE! Clark County is NOT all of Nevada! Only places like Incline Village to Zephyr Cove, are affected with snow. The Truckee River that runs through Reno downtown is STILL fine!! Northern Nevada lives in a mountain range SHADOW! Meaning only towns in the passes & mountains most affected not so much our basin floors like reno, Sparks, Fernley, fallon, hawthorn, Tonopah etc are FINE. You choose to live in and build on a flood plain, be ready for the consequences. Clark County is around 2000 ft lower than Washoe County in the north! BATTLE BORN💙🌟
