Colorado braces for 3 more days of rain
The flood warning north of Denver is expected to remain in effect until late this evening as heavy rainfall adds to the 15 inches that have already fallen on the area. It could be three more days until the rain, which Coloradans describe as "relentless," abates altogether.
At least three people have been killed in the flash floods, and thousands evacuated from their homes. In Boulder County, 20 have been reported missing by their families. Meanwhile, the National Guard deployed 100 troops and 21 military vehicles to evacuate 2,000 people from the town of Lyons, which has been completely cut off from surrounding areas.
