From the Fort Morgan Times (Dan Barker):

A sudden storm tore through Morgan County Friday night, leaving broken trees, downed power lines, hail damage and floods in its wake, and rain continued in some areas Saturday. Fort Morgan took the brunt of damage to cities, as a storm moved across central Morgan County and started dropping rain about 9:40 p.m. Friday, said Fort Morgan Police Chief Keith Kuretich. About two to three inches of heavy rain fell within a 15-minute period, with winds in excess of 75 miles per hours at times, he said. The National Weather Service characterized the storm as a wet microburst and there was a flash flood warning, Kuretich said.
