Hikers were stranded in the Utah County mountains amid heavy rains, which are also causing flash flood conditions in nearby Alpine.
Radar showed the heavy thunderstorms dropped about a quarter to half an inch of rain in the area in the course of about 45 minutes, said Steve Rogowski, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City. "It would not have been fun to be out in that," he said.
Utah Search and Rescue crews worked Thursday evening to reach hikers on Dry Creek Trail, a three-mile trek that begins at Granite Flat Campground, according to dispatchers. Just after 11 p.m., the Lone Peak Fire Department tweeted that rescuers had reached the hikers and no one was reported injured.
