GREELEY, Colo. (AP) - All voluntary evacuation notices for Poudre River flooding in Greeley have been lifted.

The city urged residents on Thursday to monitor river and stream levels because of daily fluctuations depending on the weather and other factors.

The Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1xdIfhl ) that the Poudre is still over its banks in many locations and that several roads remain closed.

A preliminary city assessment found flooding had damaged 11 residences and 12 businesses.

The National Weather Service says the Poudre in Greeley is running at 8.7 feet, which is still above flood stage. The river peaked at 9.17 feet earlier this week.
