BREAKING NEWS: Northbound U.S. 95 reopened, southbound still closed

LAS VEGAS -- The northbound side of U.S. 95 has reopened to traffic after being closed for several hours because of flood waters.

Nevada Highway Patrol says the southbound side of the freeway may not open until past midnight Tuesday.

Water, mud and debris covered several sections of the road, forcing the highway patrol to close the road to traffic. The flooding trapped a bus full of people along Lee Canyon Road. It also over turned cars along the freeway. Everyone was able to get out of their vehicles safely.

The closure starts at mile marker 99.
