Rescue Efforts Underway on the Front Range
BOULDER, Colo. Colorado is in the middle of historic floods and rescues are underway in areas of the Rocky Mountain Foothills. Officials say they are making progress reaching people trapped in communities cutoff by the floodwaters. A national guard helicopter landed with dozens of rescued children and parents cheered as they were reunited with their fifth graders. The students were in the mountains when floodwaters blocked all roads in and out of their camp near Jamestown. Emotional reunions took place after crews reached areas once cutoff. The national guard says it's rescued hundreds of people using helicopters and convoys of trucks. Heavy rains flooded an area about the size of Connecticut. Adriana Diaz has the story out of Boulder.
