More severe weather came through the area again on Sunday afternoon at about 2:30pm a storm cell went through Weld and into Morgan County. CODE RED alerts were sent out as the rains came down in buckets along I-76 & HWY 34, with visibility down to less than a quarter of a mile at times. Power outages were reported in parts of Fort Morgan, as there were also reports of mild flooding and hail in spots, as the system traveled south and east into Washington County at around 3:20pm on Sunday.
