Several roads that were washed out and covered in debris by major flooding in Beulah this week were reopened Friday, officials said.

Crews have been working to clear the roadways since heavy rain led to high water and flash flooding Wednesday.

The National Guard was called in Thursday to evacuate seven people by helicopter from their homes on Northcreek Road after flooding made the road impassable. The road remained closed Friday.

By Friday night, power had been restored to most residents, according to the San Isabel Electric Association.

No injuries or damage to homes have been reported, the Pueblo County Sheriff's Office said. Still, Pueblo County commissioners issued a disaster declaration Thursday, making the county eligible for state funds and resources.

The Pueblo Health Department plans to release details Monday about how they will be testing wells after the flooding.
