Rain In Colorado Causing Flash Flooding

Colorado_Flood_2013Boulder, Colorado — Three more days.

That’s how long it may be before all the rain goes away in Colorado, where flash flooding has cut off towns, ripped out roads and killed at least three people.

More rain is forecast through Sunday for the region, on top of the 15 inches some parts of the state have already received. While meteorologists aren’t sure which way the water will go, state officials warned that “very heavy rainfall” is likely again Friday.

“This isn’t over,” CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

Nineteen counties remained under high threat of flooding Friday, the state Office of Emergency Management said.

They include Boulder County, where National Guard troops were evacuating the entire town of Lyons, which had been cut off by flash floods.
