Flood waters washed out streets in Pueblo West.
Galileo Drive is usually a road that travels through a dry creek bed.
Workers with the Pueblo West Metropolitan District say heavy rains Sunday night and Monday morning over filled some retention ponds on Walker Ranch.
A dam broke sending a river of water washing through streets.
It was so deep they had to block off Galileo and Woodstock for awhile.
"We came from southeast Texas where we've been seeing hurricanes every year, and it's reminiscent of that except it's very isolated here fortunately," said Roy Rogers, a resident.
Everyone we spoke to said they hadn't seen flooding like this in years out there.
Those roads were shut down for about four hours, but they are now open.
