MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. -

Highway 24 was closed Sunday afternoon because of flood waters breaching the highway and a rockslide near 31st Street according to emergency responders.

Monitor crews spotted water flowing across the road just before 4 p.m.

A flash flood warning is in effect for Manitou Springs through 7 p.m.

Steady rain over the last few days has caused flooding issues across El Paso County.
