People living north of the Kenosha Farm neighborhood in Erie, specifically homes on Buffalo and Westview roads, have been ordered to evacuate by Mountain View Fire Rescue and the Weld County Sheriff's Office. The town this morning opened the Erie Community Center, 450 Powers St., as an evacuation shelter for displaced families. Erie Municipal Airport has been closed, due to standing water on the runway. Erie's assistant town administrator, Fred Diehl, said about 10 to 15 homes are affected by the evacuation orders. He said though the homeowners in that neighborhood are just outside Erie's northern limits, they are welcome to use the community center as a shelter.
