Numerous evacuation centers and shelters in Colorado remain open to support those seeking refuge from widespread flooding, and more shelters continue to open. The American Red Cross and local community partners are providing a safe place to stay, meals and comfort at sites in numerous counties.
As of noon today, Red Cross-managed shelters include:
• Adams City High School, 4625 E. 68th Ave., Commerce City
• Mapleton YMCA, 2850 Mapleton Ave., Boulder
• Erie Community Center, 40 Powers St., Erie

The Red Cross is also in touch with and providing information and guidance for these shelters and evacuation points managed by other organizations:
• Life Bridge Church, 10345 Ute Hwy, Longmont – this site is serving as an evacuation point for residents being evacuated from Lyons.
• Burger Recreation Center, 111 W. Baseline Rd., Boulder

Shelters at Arvada High School and Evie Dennis School have closed after being opened last night. This was due to lack of shelter population.
After making a consolidated assessment of all shelters of which the Red Cross is aware, we estimate that more than 1,000 Colorado residents stayed overnight last night or early this morning at shelters and evacuation centers throughout the state. This number has been revised upwards from 719 counted at 6 a.m. from an incomplete shelter list.
