CBS4 found a crunched car in the neighborhood around the University of Denver and badly damaged gardens.

“We have a lot of large branches down and luckily nothing touched the home,” DU neighborhood resident Cathy Silton said. “It looks a little devastating as a gardener. I kind of understand that things do usually swing back.”

The storm also caused some street flooding, including problems for a brief time on Colfax Avenue.
