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.
