Manitou Springs emergency managers opened a shelter for worried residents at 10 p.m., though forecasters say the town has seen the worst of Sunday's storm.
The town was under a flash flood warning that expired about 1 a.m. Monday. Flood warnings through El Paso and Teller counties were removed at 11 p.m., but a flood watch remains in place until noon Monday.
Under a flood watch, residents are advised to stay alert and prepared to head for higher ground.
David Hunting, spokesman for the city, said residents in flood-prone areas of Manitou Springs received a reverse 9-1-1 call just after 10 p.m. advising them of a voluntary evacuation. A shelter was opened at a the Congregational Church at 103 Pawnee Ave.
Hunting said Manitou Springs fared well in Sunday's storm, which stayed mostly east of the Waldo Canyon burn scar. The scar, blackened in last year's fire, won't hold water and a passing storm caused serious flooding in Manitou Springs last week.
The National Weather Service reported light rain over much of the Pikes Peak region Sunday night, with storms easing from the downpour, which dropped more than an inch or rain on the Black Forest burn scar in northern El Paso County Sunday evening.
That rain caused light flooding that briefly closed Shoup Road. Officials said there were no serious problems from that storm.
In Manitou, Hunting said no families had taken advantage of the shelter by 10:30 p.m.
He said while the weather appeared less threatening, emergency workers in the city wanted to have the shelter available through the night to house worried residents and ease concerns.
