Storms have Boulder bracing for flooding

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Another round of storms is rolling across Colorado, flooding streets in Denver and spawning tornadoes on the eastern plains.

The National Weather Service reported rainfall of 1 to 3 inches per hour from western Colorado to the northeastern part of the state Tuesday night. Boulder County officials were on alert for possible flooding on mountainsides left bare by a large wildfire last fall.

The Tribune reports local officials spotted a tornado northeast of Greeley Tuesday evening. There were no immediate reports of damage.

Lightning delayed flights up to a half hour at Denver International Airport.

Clogged drains caused water to back up in some Denver streets, prompting calls about stalled cars and flooded buildings.
