Colorado floods: Sound the alert, more flash floods possible

Flood sirens sounded overnight as Colorado emergency officials feared that debris-caked canyons might give way and send another wall of water crashing through the city of Boulder and neighboring communities.

"All residents are warned to go to higher ground immediately due to the potential for flash flooding along the creek," Boulder's Office of Emergency Management said.

Emergency management warned that "there are mudslides at the mouth of Boulder Canyon 400 feet long and four feet deep as the sides of the canyon give way due to the saturation from the days-long rain."

    From what they've showed on national news this is devastating! I cannot even imagine what those people are going through. They've barely gotten through the wildfires and now this? God bless them!
