The city of Greeley closed a section of the Poudre River Trail Thursday afternoon because the spring runoff was flowing over it.
The city closed the section from the 59th Avenue underpass (approximately mile marker 13.5) to the 71st Avenue trail crosswalk (approximately mile marker 12).
The city will determine what sections need to be closed on a daily basis depending on the spring runoff and the flooding it causes.
Even shallow water up to your ankles can sweep away a strong person. Kids are especially vulnerable to flooding.

There is a strong chance of thunderstorms sweeping through Weld County Friday night, and a slight chance of evening storms over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. High winds and heavy rain are possible over the next three days as well.
