Denver International Airport recorded 1.80″ of rain for July 29th, setting a new daily record that stood since 1989.

The town of Windsor saw over 3 inches of heavy rain Tuesday afternoon that caused streets and fields to flood quickly.

The fast moving waters poured into some nearby basements, leaving behind a lot of damage.
