KUSA - Heavy rain and flash floods have closed a stretch of Interstate 70 in both directions in Garfield County Friday.
The rain flooded a section of I-70 near U.S. 6, west of Parachute. Kelly Potter took a picture of mud, rocks and pieces of guardrail in the eastbound lanes of I-70 near DeBeque.
Law-enforcement officials reported 6 inches of mud on Colorado 64 near Rangely, and gusts that downed trees and broke a power pole in Mesa County.
CDOT says there is no estimated time for reopening the highway.
