DENVER (AP) – A fast-moving snowstorm is causing blizzard conditions in parts of eastern Colorado.

The National Weather Service says gusts up to 40 mph will cause blowing and drifting snow until around noon Wednesday.

The mountains west of Denver have also received heavy snow.



Forty flights have been canceled at Denver International Airport because of the storm and some highways are also closed because of the snow and poor visibility. They include Interstate 25 from Wellington to the Wyoming border and U.S. Highway 85 into Wyoming.

The snow has also knocked out power to about 5,000 homes and business, most of them in the Greeley area.



Greeley was also hit hard by power outages after last week’s storm. It caused about 200,000 outages along the Front Range.
