An earthquake shook Southern Colorado Thursday night.
The earthquake that struck Virginia on Tuesday hit an area that historically is not seismically active — and there’s no connection with another rare quake that struck Colorado.
High runoff from the state’s record snowpack levels has prompted the temporary closure of the Glenwood Springs Vapor Caves spa, a popular attraction in Glenwood Springs.
The record snowpack in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado has also been creating record river flows as the snow begins to melt in the rising June temperatures.
Snowpack levels in Colorado’s high country are still well above normal for this time of year. Warm spring weather could change that quickly.
