WINDSOR, Colo. (AP) – Northern Colorado got the brunt of heavy rains that flooded streets and stranded drivers up and down the Front Range.

Four inches of rain fell Tuesday in the town of Windsor, about 50 miles north of Denver. Some people had to be rescued from their stranded cars, while others walked through flooded streets.

In the mountains, the rains triggered a mudslide that closed a portion of Interstate 70 near the tiny community of Wolcott.

There were no major problems in the foothills hit hard by last September’s flooding, but at least one road in Lyons still had several inches of water on it Wednesday.

More rain is forecast throughout the day but with only pockets of heavy accumulation.
