BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4)– This week’s snow and rain, with more in the forecast, has brought up flooding concerns for some people living in Boulder.

The Boulder County Office of Emergency Management is watching the stream monitors for Boulder Creek, where the stream is still low and slow.

“I was just afraid at some point the same situation was going to start again,” said Boulder resident Toni Douglass.

“Out there along that edge, that’s why my husband put the plastic down there,” said Douglass when describing a tarp placed over part of her yard and basement windows.

“If was have too much more rain I’m going to have to stay up mopping,” said Douglass.

The Boulder County Office of Emergency Management said they will continue to monitor water levels but aren’t too concerned because the streams and creeks are at a normal level right now.

With more rain and snow in the forecast for the next few days, Douglass is concerned, “Admittedly I probably only slept three or four hours because I was concerned and I might be this evening, also.

“Unfortunately there’s not a whole lot except praying that one can do.”
