Public safety crews responded to submerged vehicles on Dillon Road 0.2 miles east of 287. When they arrived, they discovered a culvert had washed out and three cars were under water. One vehicle was upside down. North Metro Fire pulled three individuals out of the upside down vehicle. They were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries. The occupants of the other vehicles had already managed to escape the water. Motorists are reminded that conditions remain dangerous throughout the region. Do not get in a car and drive unless absolutely necessary.
The evacuation center at the Memorial Building in Longmont is beginning to fill up. A new emergency evacuation center has opened at Silver Creek High School at 4901 Nelson Road in Longmont.
We understand that many people want to help in times of great need. The biggest help we can get is for people to remain calm and stay home so our first responders can get into the community and help get things understood and under control. After the situation has calmed, volunteer organizations will begin to coordinat the cleanup effort and donation centers will be established.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
