Deadly Rain In Colorado Breaks 1894 Record

Posted: Updated:

BOULDER, Colorado (WLNS) - The relentless rain in Colorado caused massive flooding and mud slides caused a lot of damage to homes, businesses, neighborhoods and streets. Some neighborhoods are still unreachable by road.

There was finally a break from the rain Friday morning, but a steady stream of water continues to wash through the streets of Boulder. Walls of floodwater are still flowing down from the mountains. It's being called a 100 year flood, the worst since 1894.

More than a foot of rain has fallen on the area this week, swamping the city's rainfall records. Even more rain is expected later Friday. The governor is warning people to stay away from flooded streets. At least three people have been killed and more than a dozen are unaccounted for.

President Barrack Obama signed an emergency order Thursday night approving Federal Disaster Aid for the area.
