At 852 PM MDT... Doppler radar indicated thunderstorms producing
heavy rain across the warned area. Pueblo Doppler radar is
estimating between 0.50 and 1 inch of rain has fallen across the
Eight Mile burn scar.

moving through the Eight Mile creek and Phantom Canyon drainage. The
debris flow can consist of rock... mud... vegetation and other loose
materials.

Flash flooding will remain over mainly rural areas of eastern Fremont
County.

This includes the following streams and drainages... Eightmile creek.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

Move away from recently burned areas. Life threatening flooding of
creeks... roads and normally dry arroyos is likely. The heavy rains
will likely trigger Rockslides... mudslides and debris flows in steep
terrain... especially in and around these areas.

Please report flooding to your local law enforcement agency when you
can do so safely.
