flash flood warning news flash

(Aug. 16, 2022 - 8:30am) 

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a flash flood warning for parts of Superior, Louisville and Lafayette in south eastern Boulder County. 1-2 inches of rain have fallen and another 1 inch of rain may occur. If you encounter flash flooding seek higher ground and do not drive through flood waters over roadways. The flash flood warning is in effect until 11am.

Follow the link for updates from the Boulder Office of Emergency Management (OEM).

Sign up for countywide emergency notifications from Boulder OEM.

Please avoid the Coal Creek Trail as water levels have flooded the trail in some areas. 

When driving or walking, if water levels are high, always turn around - don't drown. A mere 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away most cars and just 2 feet of rushing water can carry away SUVs and trucks. It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters.
