2 dead as flash flooding hits parts of Colo.
DENVER - Flash flooding in Colorado has left two people dead and the widespread high waters are keeping search and rescue teams from reaching stranded residents and motorists in Boulder and nearby mountain communities as heavy rains hammered northern Colorado on Thursday.
Boulder Office of Emergency Management spokeswoman Gabrielle Boerkircher said volunteers are trying to help stranded people until emergency crews can arrive because many roads are impassable.
Boerkircher said one person was killed when a structure collapsed in Jamestown.
Colorado Springs spokeswoman Kim Melchor said police conducting flood patrols found a body in the water on the west side of the city Thursday morning after warnings were issued for flooding from a wildfire burn scar west of town.
