Authorities in Nevada are investigating a death at the Burning Man festival after flooding from storms swept through the area. Thousands of attendees were stranded and organizers closed vehicular access to the festival. Attendees were urged to shelter in place and conserve supplies. The death occurred during the event, but details have not been released. Vehicle gates will not open for the remainder of the event, which was scheduled to end on Monday. Heavy rain caused rationing of ice sales and halted all vehicle traffic at the festival grounds. The entrance has not yet been reopened, leaving celebrants unsure of when they can leave.
