Two Dead in Colorado Flash Flooding

Heavy rain in Boulder


More than half a foot of rain deluged Boulder County, Colorado, overnight, setting off rock slides, putting dams at risk and killing at least two people.

One person died after being trapped in a collapsed building, Boulder County spokeswoman Gabbie Boerkircher said. The circumstances surrounding the other death weren't clear early Thursday, but the Colorado Springs Fire Department said on Twitter that the body had been recovered by a "heavy rescue team."
