The National Weather Service in Denver has extended the

* Flood Warning for...
central Logan County in northeastern Colorado...

* until 1100 PM MDT Sunday

Spotters and emergency management reported flooding continues across
areas of Logan County northwest and north of Sterling Colorado. A
spotter 10 miles north of Sterling reported that 4 inches of rain
fell yesterday form a series of showers and thunderstorms that
occurred from late afternoon through the evening hours. Many Farms
in the area have reported water in their house's basements and
widespread field and roadway flooding.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered for Globe Meadows and areas
between Globe street and Pioneer Road due to ditch flooding just
west of the trailer park. Many County roads remain closed in
locations north and northwest of Sterling early this morning.

Doppler radar indicted anywhere from three to four inches of rain
had fallen on Saturday afternoon and evening. A Flash Flood Watch
has been issued for this area for this afternoon and this evening as
another round of thunderstorms is likely along with further flash
flooding possible.

Some locations that will experience flooding include... northern
Sterling.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into
areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually
deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... don't drown.
