FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) – Coal trains are being rerouted from Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska through Colorado because of flooding.

BNSF Railway officials say they are rerouting about 20 loaded trains a day south through Sterling, then Denver, La Junta and onto Kansas City.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, the company is working as fast as possible to fix flooded tracks, in some cases raising them up eight feet to prevent future flooding.
