Commerce City: Funnel Cloud Sighted at 74th Ave and York

Commerce City had a severe storm move through with a funnel cloud sighted at 74th Ave and York as the storm moved toward and through Commerce City. The sirens were sounded at 7:18 p.m., with an all clear issued at 7:48 p.m. Heavy rain came down throughout the city, with some street flooding citywide. Fortunately the storm moved through rapidly before the water could rise enough to cause serious problems. However the saturated ground and standing water is not leaving much capacity to handle additional rain.
