CENTENNIAL, Colo. --  A strong thunderstorm soaked Centennial and the south metro Denver area on Monday afternoon.

The storm flooded streets, led to a partial collapse of a hangar at Centennial Airport and flooded nearly the entire Broncos training camp field.

A flash flood warning was issued for Douglas and Arapahoe counties until 5:30 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

Centennial Airport reported more than 2 inches of rain. About 30 people were inside a hangar when the roof partially collapsed. No injuries or damage to aircraft were reported.

Inspectors will be at the airport on Tuesday morning to look at the hangar and review the damage.

The rain also forced Broncos training camp to be closed to the public on Tuesday to allow crews to clear the water off the field.

The storm quickly turned the practice field into a lake and several inches of water covered the field at one point. The parking lot outside was not much better. It was swamped, and tents and canopies were knocked over by the wind and rain.

The grounds crew made the best of it, grabbing rain gear and shovels to try to paddle their way across the practice field.
