CROOK, Colo. (AP) - The flooding that started in Colorado's foothills continues to spread slowly eastward.
RECENT COLORADO FLOODING STORIES
The South Platte River has flooded farm fields and closed two country roads in Sedgwick County but emergency management director Mark Turner says it wasn't causing any major problems Tuesday. Cattle were moved out of the flood zone over the weekend because of the anticipated flooding.
The river is expected to rise above flood stage in Julesberg by early Wednesday but Turner says he only expects minor flooding.
The town is set back from the river, which spreads into four channels there.
Earlier Tuesday, residents in the town of Crook - about halfway between Sterling and Julesberg - were told to evacuate because of the high river levels.
