STERLING, Colo. (AP) - The flood threat in northeastern Colorado has eased for now but Logan County residents are being asked to remain alert because of additional storms expected during the week.

Residents braced for another possible round of flooding Sunday afternoon because of expected heavy rain but Logan County emergency management coordinator Cody Adams says very little precipitation fell. However, authorities did have to rescue a driver who got stuck after passing a barricade on a flooded road near Crook.

After weeks of heavy rain, some residents had to evacuate after the North Sterling Reservoir inlet ditch spilled over its banks but those orders were lifted Sunday. The Colorado Air National Guard found erosion north and west of Sterling, but no breaches of any creeks.

Pre-evacuation orders north of Sterling were lifted Monday.
