Watches & Warnings

Flash Flood Warning
Issued: 6:57 PM MDT Jul. 15, 2018 – National Weather Service

... The Flash Flood Warning remains in effect until 745 PM MDT for
southeastern Fremont... northeastern Custer and western Pueblo
counties...

Heavy rains which caused flash flooding in the junkins burn scar are
moving northward along hardscabble creek in Fremont County. The
water along hardscabble creek in Fremont County is likely running
very high, or is out of its banks. Please use extreme caution if
live along, or driving near, hardscabble creek in Fremont County.

Hardscabble creek crosses County Road 106, County Road 19, and
Highway 120 in Fremont County. It then empties into the Arkansas
River at Portland.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Remain alert for flooding even in locations not receiving rain.
Arroyos, streams, and rivers can become raging killer currents in a
matter of minutes, even from distant rainfall.

Move away from recently burned areas. Life-threatening flooding of
creeks, roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger Rockslides, mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain, especially in and around these areas.
