KERSEY, Colo. – From Southern Colorado to Northern Colorado, most of the Front Range was walloped by flood waters over the weekend. In Kersey, the South Platte nearly bubbled up to the height of some bridges.

Several inches of rain pelted the state over the last week. Sheriff’s Departments from multiple counties urged people who lived near bodies of water to prepare for flooding.

In Evans and La Salle on Saturday, town employees were out monitoring South Platte River. Parts of the river seeped into nearby farms, including the one owned by Janet Morris.

“It’s a little discerning when it’s out in the bottom pastures but that’s happened twice in 30 years before,” said Morris.

The last time the river crept onto her property was during the flood of 2013.

“I’m not too concerned right now,” Morris said.

For now, Morris and her husband Jim are staying put and just monitoring the situation.
