Heavy Rain Produces Flooding, Strands Drivers In Colorado

WINDSOR, Colo. (July 30, 2014) Northern Colorado bore the brunt of heavy rain that flooded streets and stranded drivers along the Front Range.

Four inches of rain fell Tuesday in the town of Windsor, about 50 miles north of Denver.

Some people had to be rescued from their stranded cars, while others walked through flooded streets.

In the mountains, the rains triggered a mudslide that closed a portion of Interstate 70 near the tiny community of Wolcott.

A trailer in Vilas collapsed in strong winds late Wednesday night, killing Donald Falconburg, 84, the Baca County Sheriff's Office said.

The rain caused no major problems in the foothills hit hard by last September's flooding, but at least one road in Lyons still had several inches of water on it Wednesday.

More rain is forecast throughout the day, but with only pockets of heavy accumulation.
