Colorado: Over 500 People Unaccounted For After Flood Of Biblical Proportions Devastates Towns


Fox News – “As rains bring historic flooding to Colorado that has killed at least four people and left more than 500 unaccounted for, residents were bracing for more heavy rain Sunday.

According to DailyCamera.com, the treacherous weather that has devastated the state was followed by drier, clearer skies on Saturday. But that seems a temporary respite, as the forecast called for even wetter conditions Sunday.

‘It looks like there is a chance of some heavy rain Sunday, and a continued risk of flash flooding. And then we finally dry out on Monday,’ National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina told the website.

Rescue teams are warning people in some Colorado towns isolated by devastating flooding against remaining there, telling them that they could face weeks without basic supplies, including running water and electricity.

Helicopters and truck convoys of the National Guard carried the admonition Saturday into paralyzed canyon communities where thousands of stranded residents were eager to escape the Rocky Mountain foothills. But not everybody was willing to go. Dozens of people in hard hit Jamestown wanted to stay to watch over their homes.

Authorities made clear that residents who chose not to leave might not get another chance for a while. Rescuers won’t go back for people who insist on staying, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said.” Read more.
