DEATH VALLEY NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Flash flooding at Death Valley National Park triggered by heavy rainfall on Friday buried cars, forced officials to close all roads in and out the park and stranded about 1,000 people, officials said

The park near the California-Nevada state line received at least 1.

7 inches (4.3 centimeters) of rain at the Furnace Creek area, which park officials in a statement said represented “nearly an entire year’s worth of rain in one morning.” The park’s average annual rainfall is 1.9 inches (4.8 centimeters).

About 60 vehicles were buried in debris and about 500 visitors and 500 park workers were stranded, park officials said. The California Department of Transportation estimated it would take four to six hours to open a road that would allow park visitors to leave.

It was the second major flooding event at the park this week. Some roads were closed Monday after they were inundated with mud and debris from flash floods that also hit western Nevada and northern Arizona hard.

During Friday’s rainstorms, the “flood waters pushed dumpster containers into parked cars, which caused cars to collide into one another. Additionally, many facilities are flooded including hotel rooms and business offices,” the park statement said.

A water system that provides it for park residents and offices also failed after a line broke that was being repaired, the statement said.

A flash flood warning for the park and surrounding area expired at 12:45 p.m., Friday but a flood advisory remained in effect into the evening, the National Weather Service said.

Little People’s Audrey Roloff slammed for putting Instagram ‘aesthetic’ and brand before her kids with ‘gross’ new post

AUDREY Roloff is being slammed for objecting to a typical and long-favored children's toy, even as her youngest son was all smiles playing in it.

The Little People, Big World star vented her frustrations online, as many fans assumed her opposition lies more with the look of the toy, rather than its function.

Over the weekend, the mother of three shared an adorable video of her nearly one-year-old son Radley laughing and enjoying his baby bouncer.

The Baby Einstein Neighborhood Symphony Jumper is a colorful mini-playset, stuffed with tiny musical instruments and bright noisemakers designed to make a cacophony of sounds.

It's everything the typically neutral-favored mom detests, which she even addressed in the caption.

"One of many obnoxious children's items I said I'd never have," she confessed. "But here we are.

"The joy is worth the eyesore."

Online, fans in a Little People chat room were appalled at her reaction.

"God forbid she has anything in her house that isn’t beige," one person commented. "Damn, Audrey, let your kids have fun with colorful kids toys, and let go of your stupid damn aesthetic for once."

Another added: "Lord help you for having to get something colorful for your baby even though it makes your house 'ugly'. Such a trooper."

"Oh, but they only buy "intentional" toys for the kids. Blocks of wood, a wooden spoon, a pet rock," a third shared, while one fan tagged on: "She wants sad beige toys for her sad beige baby."

PARENTAL GUIDANCE

Slamming Audrey's parenting skills has become something of a sport for fans, who have been especially critical about her messy home.

The criticism ignited after Audrey, 31, shared a snap of her then 9-month-old son, Radley jumping around in a baby bouncer attached to a wall frame in front of what appeared to be his nursery.

The tiny tot was all smiles as he twisted around non-stop.

Mom even captioned the video: "My jumping bean."

But behind the bean, clearly visible, was a mess of sharp toys scattered on the floor, including a construction truck, books and papers, and action figures.

Audrey made no excuse for the mess, defending it in a follow-up post.

"Y’all…this is nothing," she shared. "And in case you’re new around here, this is (and definitely won’t be in the coming months) your place for picture-perfect home content."

MESSY MOTHER

Even before baby Radley's arrival, his nursery was a mess, as Audrey struggled to keep it clean.

Last October, just one month before his birth, Jeremy Roloff's wife gave fans a glimpse at her new baby’s nursery, which featured a crib, baby toys, a rocker, and a neck pillow, all on the floor.

Baby clothes were piled in the middle of the floor, while the room also included what appeared to be a suitcase ready for the upcoming delivery.

The Oregon native captioned the clip: “Baby number 3’s room.”

The supposed mess wasn't just confined to their children's rooms, either as Audrey shared a candid photo of her unkept home hours later.

She showed her real life via her Instagram Stories, posting photos of massive piles of laundry she hadn't dealt with yet.

The ex-TLC star detailed the snap in the caption: "Also this is my current view from my 'post bedtime lay down for a minute before cleaning up spot.'"

In another story, showing only one large pile, she writes: "Just here to make you feel better about your life."
