Incredible sights of damage have been shared to News 3 from across the Las Vegas valley.

The violent winds snapped a traffic light pole in the intersection of West Charleston and Torrey Pines.

The gusts also took down a giant screen at the drive-in theatre in North Las Vegas as it collapsed into the road.

LVMPD officers were forced to direct traffic at multiple places across the valley, such as near the Spencer and Warm Springs intersection after street lights went dark.

Neighbors in that area say they were without electricity for hours.

Trees throughout dozens of neighborhoods were uprooted.

Then there's Jeri and her roommate, Dave. The storm tore through their backyard wall, tearing the bricks to shreds.

"I was over in the corner, had my back turned, it sounded like a firecracker or gunshot went off. I turn around and look - the wall's gone! Where the hell did the wall go?" Dave said.

“I'm from Chicago. They got all the snow up there,” said Jeri. “I'm laughing at them, thinking we would only get five raindrops with this. Pshh, we got a collapsed wall!”

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue also mentioned a bouncy house that flew up onto the roof of a house when children were still inside.
