August 6th 2008 Flash Flood Greeley

Very heavy rain today caused flash flood problems for drivers and for basements in houses. Many roads were later closed to flooding due to cars getting stuck in the water. Earlier in the day around 7pm a tornado warning was issued, the wx alert system went crazy in my living room and i saw a tornado warning so i was already out the door by the time it got done beeping. I called skinner to get me the situation report and turned on the wx radio for information on the warning. Skinner saw two boundaries colliding and therefore created weak rotation leading to the warning, no tornadoes reported. People in Lodo heard tornado sirens going off, a friend of mine called to let me know.
