Photos: Areas remain flooded in Greeley as spring runoff pushes Poudre over banks

Photo: Flood water rolling (iStock)Some streets and fields remain flooded in Greeley as the spring runoff continued to push the Poudre River over its banks, just above the previous crest record for the river set in 2010.

The water has been high along the Poudre for a week and levels of waterways around the state are expected to remain high for another two weeks or so as the plentiful mountain snowpack melts and fills reservoirs. The South Platte Basin, which includes the Poudre, is listed as being nearly 300 percent of its average level as of last week.

Many local residents and media outlets took to social media this week to show the impact of flooding in and around Greeley. Here's a collection of what they saw:
