News - Tremors in Denver
Residents in Colfax and surrounding neighborhoods reported a short series of earthquakes late last night. The tremors struck around 10:37 PM MDT and left many older buildings along the thoroughfare with structural damage.

The earthquake did little to curb the recent outbreaks of violence in the area with a number of shooting and domestic violence calls leading to police investigations.

Police will be escorting inspectors and other officials to assess the damage to the foundations of buildings in the coming weeks and check gas lines for possible damage. A number of shelters, churches, and local schools have opened up their spaces for those left on the streets after the earthquake.

Sources with the mayor's office say local government officials have been inquiring with regional military installations and universities to identify the cause of the quake in order to help predict future disturbances.
