Storms Bring Heavy Rain, Leave Standing Water
DENVER (CBS4)- Storms rolled through the Denver metro area once again on Thursday afternoon, leaving motorists stranded in standing water.
Copter4 flew over one flooded area, which left two cars floating in water in a parking lot near Colorado Blvd. and Hampden Ave.
There was also flooding at the nearby Wellshire Golf Course. Construction is under way at a home there, which was flooded.
The storms have caused some traffic tie-ups during the evening commute as drivers try to get home before another round of rain hits. Flash flooding and street flooding has also caused some problems around the Denver metro area.
Copter4 flew over standing water under the train tracks at Oxford and Santa Fe in Sheridan, near the River Point shopping complex.
Traffic was at a standstill because eastbound Oxford was closed at about 4:30 p.m..
Brave drivers made their way through flooded streets near Leetsdale and Quebec. Heavy rain overwhelmed the street drains, leaving water in the streets. Several parking lots of businesses to the west of the intersection were also flooded. There have been no reports of any damage to any of the businesses in that area.
A large tree was spotted on the ground at 5299 S. Pennsylvania Street in Greenwood Village. There is no word on what caused the downed tree.
