LYONS, Colo. (AP) Many flood victims from Lyons who signed short-term leases for temporary housing can now return home, but it could cost them if they break their leases.

Renters paid a premium for a 90-day lease at some apartments after the September floods, but found out this weekend that utilities had been restored in Lyons months earlier than expected.

According to KMGH-TV, that could be bad news for some people who could be forced to pay two months' rent to break their temporary leases.
