A crew with the city of Grand Junction removes rocks, mud and water off Ridges Boulevard early this morning, after heavy rains overnight washed debris over the road and filled culverts in the Ridges subdivision.
Grand Junction set a record for rainfall for the date before the sun came up today, and more precipitation is likely on the way.
Another flash flood warning has been issued by the National Weather Service and will remain through this evening.

Son eyed in death is arrested

A man labeled a “person of interest” in the death of his mother was arrested Monday morning in Grand Junction on unrelated warrants. Daniel Stetzel, 31, was taken into custody by Grand Junction police after a 911 caller reported at 8:30 a.m. that a man was acting strangely near the Blue Heron boat ramp off Redlands Parkway, police spokeswoman Kate Porras said. Stetzel initially gave officers a fake name before providing his true identity, she said.
