FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- The metal work museum created by a man near Fort Collins was under water Monday night. Water from the rapidly rising Poudre River did the damage. His artwork is now sunken at the Swetsville Zoo.

His property is on Harmony Road just east of I-25.

Bill Swets hopes he can restore his art pieces as soon as the water recedes.
