GREELEY, Colo. (AP) – Some Greeley residents have been told to evacuate because of high water along the Poudre River.

About 200 homes and businesses got a reverse 911 call telling them of the voluntary evacuation just before midnight Sunday.

Other flood advisories and watches are in effect in western Colorado as the warm weather melts the mountain snowpack. The Elk River in Routt County and the Colorado River near Dotsero are among the waterways at risk of flooding.
