KUSA - More heavy rain drenched the town of Manitou Springs three days after a deadly mudslide.
The Colorado Department of Transportation closed U.S. 24 in Waldo Canyon near Manitou Springs because of flooding concerns Monday. It was later reopened.
Thunderstorms producing moderate to very heavy rainfall pounded Manitou Springs and the southern part of the Waldo Canyon burn scar.
Governor Hickenlooper's disaster declaration for Manitou Springs, issued Monday, frees up $400,000 for the cleanup and orders the Colorado National Guard to help with future flooding searches and rescues.
The chance for storms will continue after sunset. Storms will gradually move into southeast Colorado Monday night.
Tuesday and Wednesday will bring more chances for showers and thunderstorms, including a threat of heavy rain, lightning and hail. Drier air will push back into the state Thursday.
