In January 2005 a 100-year flood occurred throughout the region, due to prolonged heavy rainfall overflowing the Virgin River and Santa Clara River (Utah).One person was killed and 28 homes were destroyed by the Santa Clara River. George received the brunt of the fallout of above-ground nuclear testing at the Yucca Flats/Nevada Test Site northwest of Las Vegas.The urban area is studded by numerous hills, mesas, waterways and habitat reserves, creating natural boundaries of sections, neighborhoods, and communities within the city. George is bordered by its suburbs; Washington and Hurricane to the east, Santa Clara and Ivins to the west-northwest, and the community of Bloomington which forms the southwestern part of the city.The downtown area is generally located in the central valley between the natural boundaries, Black Hill to the west, the red sandstone bluff or Red Hill to the north, Foremaster Ridge to the east, and the Virgin River to the south.The Beaver Dam Mountains, commonly referred to as Utah Hill, lie to the west, the Red Cliffs National Conservation Area and Pine Valley Mountains to the north, the western edge of the Colorado Plateau and Zion National Park to the east, and the Arizona Strip to the south.The Virgin and Santa Clara rivers flow through the valley and converge near the western base of Webb Hill.
