SALT LAKE CITY Sept. 15, 2015 – Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes today issued the following statement regarding the flash flooding taking place in Washington County:

“I was just in Washington County meeting with members of the Hildale community late last week. I am heartbroken to hear of this devastating loss, particularly in light of other recent tragedies they have faced. Government serves several roles in society, but one of its fundamental obligations is public safety – and I know state and local officials are closely coordinating resources in recovery efforts.  On behalf of the state of Utah, I offer thanks to the first responders, law enforcement personnel, volunteers and others doing all they can to assist recovery efforts.  And Saysha and I express our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims affected by this tragedy.”
