Flooding Cuts Off Summit County Town

FLOOD-WATER-300Flooding has cut off access to the small Summit County town of Montezuma.  The Snake River overflowed its banks where a culvert was jammed with debris on Tuesday, washing away part of the road leading to Montezuma and leaving the rest under water.  A voluntary evacuation order has been issued. Reports say several of the 65 full-time residents were staying in town yesterday even though it could take several days to a week to get the road open again.  The town is located near Arapahoe Basin and Keystone ski resorts.
