Fountain creek running high, water not overflowing banks

A flash flood warning remains in effect for the Waldo Canyon Burn Scar until 12:30 a.m. MT.

As a result, both directions of Highway 24 from Cave of the Winds to Cascade are closed. Our News 5 crew in Manitou Springs says Fountain Creek is runing high and fast, but there is no large debris and the water has not overflowed the banks.

As of 11:20 p.m., the USGS rain gauge indicates .2 inches of rain has fallen at Lower Waldo Canyon in the last hour, .99 inches of rain in the last four hours.
