Colorado flash floods kill 2

More than half a foot of rain deluged Boulder County, Colorado, overnight, setting off flooding and rock slides that collapsed homes, put dams at risk and killed at least two people.

One person died after being trapped in a collapsed building, in Jamestown, 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."

Numerous other buildings had collapsed, but it was unclear how many or if there were any other injuries, Boerkircher said. A rockslide was hampering access to the site.

    This is covered on the Political Ticker blog. Not exactly the vast conspiracy you're making it out to be. But typical of the extreme far right to obfuscate.

      It was probably the way you wrote the post, JF. As in the "what the liveral media doesn't want you to know", when the story was in plain sight. Guess I wanted to get a cheap shot in, myself.
      You do the same, Jeff Frank.
