  that heavy rain was falling over the area. Between 1 and 2 inches 
  of rain has fallen in the last 3 hours...with an additional one 
  half to 1.5 inches of rain in the next 3 hours with just a slight 
  decrease in rain intensity. However...this additional rain will 
  fall on top of the 6 to 14 inches of rain that has already fallen. 
  Life threatening flash flooding will continue.
* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
  northwestern Arvada...western Westminster...Boulder...western
  Longmont...southwestern Broomfield...Lafayette...Louisville...
  Superior...Lyons...Jamestown...Salina...Eldorado Springs...
  Crisman...Gold Hill...Niwot...Summerville...Wallstreet...Rocky

Boulder Creek in the city of Boulder...in the Fourmile burn 
area...in Boulder Canyon....Lefthand Canyon...and St vrain canyon 
through the town of Lyons...and along south Boulder Creek through 
Eldorado Springs. Heavy rainfall will cause extensive and severe 
flash flooding of creeks and streams from the Fourmile burn area 
downstream through the city of Boulder. Numerous roads and bridges 
have been washed out.
Some drainage basins impacted include Boulder Creek...Fourmile 
creek...Gold Run...Fourmile Canyon creek...Wonderland 
creek...south Boulder Creek...lefthand creek...and the St vrain. 
Severe debris flows and rock slides can also be anticipated across 
roads. Roadways and bridges will be washed away in places.  Numerous

...A Flood Warning remains in effect until 830 PM MDT Thursday for
northwestern Arapahoe...western Weld...northern Jefferson...
Larimer...western Adams...Broomfield...Denver and Boulder counties...
Rain...very heavy at times...will continue through this evening. 
Rainfall totals have totaled 3 to 8 inches in many areas...with 
between 8 and 14 inches over the least 3 days in the foothills of 
Boulder County into the city of Boulder...as well as in the Aurora 
area. Additional rainfall of 1 to locally 4 inches or more will keep 
severe flooding continuing in most areas.

significantly.

Village...Superior...Federal Heights...Firestone...western Denver
International Airport and Johnstown.
Precautionary/preparedness actions...
Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice...turn around...dont drown.
Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the
roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross
safely. Move to higher ground.
