“The Coroner’s Office will identify the deceased, along with cause and manner of death,” the sheriff’s office said.
The local Highway 14 was opened for traffic, but the Poudre River was closed — from the Fish Hatchery to the mouth of the canyon — until further notice, authorities said.
“This restriction applies to all watercraft craft and the restrictions are being imposed in response to disaster relief and debris removal relating to the flooding and mudslides into the Poudre River near the Black Hollow Road bridge that occurred on July 20,” they said.
The Sheriff’s Office said restrictions will likely last through the weekend and that there are forecasts for more potential flooding in the coming days.
Several homes damaged
At least five homes were damaged in the flooding, KMGH reported.
The sheriff’s office previously issued mandatory evacuations due to flooding in the area.
“We ask that residents remain alert to the weather conditions in the event additional evacuations may be necessary,” the alert said.
