Over 1000 People Unaccounted For In Colorado Flood [Photos]

According to USA Today, “The number of people unaccounted for in flood-ravaged Colorado rose Sunday to 1,254 as flooding spread to 15 counties and rain continued to fall.

Many of those unaccounted for were reported unreachable on the phone by family members.

Five fatalities — four in Boulder County and one in El Paso County — have been confirmed since the bulk of the rain began Wednesday evening. Still the number of fatalities could rise.

Some 1,500 homes have been destroyed and about 17,500 have been damaged, according to an initial estimate released by the Colorado Office of Emergency Management.”
