    Floods in Utah Kill at Least 16

    Rescue crews are searching the flooded areas along the banks of Short Creek in southern Utah today after days of rain and flash floods killed 16 and left at least one missing. Twelve of the victims were washed away in Hildale — where many from Warren Jeffs’ polygamous religious sect still live — and the other four were Zion National Park hikers killed by flood waters in a narrow canyon. Questions are being raised over whether locals knew about the flood warnings as teams continue combing through the wreckage.
