Kim Kobel, a spokesperson for the Boulder Police and Fire Departments, strongly discouraged that behavior, and, for the first time, declared it illegal. “The Governor has declared (Boulder) a disaster area,” Kobel said. “That means boating of any kind — that includes kayaks and tubes — is illegal. A lot of people want to go check out the flood water for themselves. It’s very dangerous … and you could face charges for doing that.” Kobel also said the open space and mountains are closed because of mudslides and potentially weak bridges. Ryan Huff, a spokesperson for the CU-Boulder Police Department, said 350 remained evacuated from the University of Colorado’s campus in Boulder as of Friday morning. He continued to say those individuals would remain evacuated until Boulder Creek levels receded to 2,500 cubic feet per second and until Boulder received a favorable weather forecast. “Right now, we don’t have those conditions,” Huff said. CU spokesman Bronson Hilliard said the CU-Fresno State football game originally scheduled for Saturday had been rescheduled.
