A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
The United Steelworkers Union and Oregon Steel have announced a tentative settlement of a labor dispute. That comes more than six years after about a thousand members of the union walked off the job at the company's Pueblo plant.
The settlement will have to be approved by the union's membership and the board and stockholders of Oregon Steel and officials expect the result to be a new five-year contract.
Officials for the Steelworkers say the pact calls for workers who lost their mill jobs after a 1997 strike to get back pay, "return rights" and pension credits.
