GREELEY — More Greeley residents have been advised to be ready to evacuate their homes because of flooding from the Poudre (POO'-dur) River.

About 200 homes and businesses received a voluntary evacuation notice just before midnight Sunday. On Monday, the city issued voluntary evacuation notices for homes along parts of 5th and 7th streets, 6th Avenue, and the Poudre River on the east.

The Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1kCrzGb ) that water is receding in west Greeley, according to Public Works Director Joel Hemesath.

Other flood advisories and watches are in effect in western Colorado as the warm weather melts the mountain snowpack. The Elk River in Routt County and the Colorado River near Dotsero are among waterways at risk of flooding.
