Boulder Flood Waters Rise

Record levels of rain continue to drench a nearly 130-mile stretch of Colorado, including the cities of Fort Collins, Boulder, Denver and Colorado Springs. Rushing flood waters have cut off major highways in the area, destroyed bridges and isolated mountain towns. Several people are confirmed dead, and others are still unaccounted for. Countless homes and businesses have been destroyed by what has been deemed “The Storm of the Century.”
