Flooding Kills One in Breckenridge, Multiple Rescued


One person was killed in the flooding in Breckenridge Monday morning, and there about a dozen water rescues.

The Breckenridge city secretary reports the victim who died was swept away in the flood waters off of 183 near the water treatment plant.  We will refrain from identifying the victim until family members have been notified.

Several roads leading into the city are closed, and rescuers had to help about 12 people out of of their flooded and stalled vehicles.

A person working at the city’s water filtration operation had to be rescued from the floodwater.

That means that the only water available this morning is the water in the lines.

The city officials ordered Stage-4 water restrictions until the issue is resolved.

KTAB and KRBC will have a crew in Breckenridge today and will keep you informed of the impact of this flooding.
