Monday, April 29th, 2019, saw a record rainfall level for the Las Vegas Valley. Parts of the region, like Las Vegas McCarran International Airport, saw .25 inches of rain in one day. A flood advisory was issued.
Yet, with all of that, and more, only one media outlet managed to wonder how the Oakland Raiders Las Vegas Stadium was impacted: Las Vegas vloggers Rich and Joy Lightowler, who call themselves “JediRich Lightowler and JediJoy Lightowler” – they love Star Wars.
Jedi Joy made a video-blog on that same day and reported that construction had stopped and Mortenson / McCarthy took all of the necessary safety measures to make sure workers were not harmed during the thunderstorm and rain. In other words, construction was stopped.
This vlogger visited the Raiders website livestream on this Tuesday, and noticed that, save for two or three people on the site, construction was still stopped, and much of the property was still wet, if not underwater.
Will the delays carry into a third day? And how will this impact the overall construction schedule? All of those questions, and others, will be explored in this livestream talk.
