Colorado battles historic flooding; more rain to come

BOULDER, Colo. — Another round of storms swept into battered Colorado on Saturday as weary residents reeled from days of death and destruction wrought by historic flooding.

Evacuations continued at a frantic pace as rescuers encountered swamped roads, inundated homes and the dark forecast of more rain to come.

“It is a sinking feeling when you realize that when some people call … we are not going to be able to get to them,” Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said. “But we are making great progress.”

Pelle said more than 170 people unaccounted for in the Boulder area were not considered missing yet, though they had not contacted family members
