Threat of flooding eases in parts of Colorado

DENVER – The threat of flooding has eased in some parts of Colorado but high water is causing problems in Greeley.

Three city streets were closed Wednesday because of flooding from the Poudre River.

In Vail, authorities say water levels dropped overnight following two straight nights of high flows. Fifteen homes have flood damage but no additional flooding has been reported.

Crews have also cleared most of the debris that built up behind a partially washed out bridge in Boulder Canyon, reducing the risk that water would surge through if the bridge failed.

The bridge leads to the Red Lion restaurant and now owners must figure out how to get four wedding parties across the swift moving creek to receptions planned for this weekend.
