Colorado gets caught in flood

Damage reported Thursday was in Boulder County, where the National Weather Service said a 20-foot wall of water rolled down a mountain canyon north of the city.

One death was confirmed and another was scared after a car stopped in the rushing watr. Witnesses said a woman emerged from the car and was swept away. A man left the car and tried to reach her and also was swept away, Boulder County Sheriff's Cmdr. Heidi Prentup said. She said the man's body had been found and the woman was missing.

Bodies also were found in a fallen home in Jamestown and on a roadin Colorado Springs.

In other places, homes collapsed onto peoplle and a dam in Larimer County broke, flooding some houses and trapping three people, a spokesman said.

Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said some people there face the issue of whether to try to move to safer shelters over bridges that may have been damaged. They will "have to use their own judgment," he said/

An emergency message from the sheriff's office to residents of Big Thompson Canyon said, "If you are cut off because of a compromised bridge, you need to stay at your residence but have a plan to get to higher ground at a moment's notice."

Another concern was a team of Lyons firefighters that had been stuck on a mountainside Thursday morning after their vehicle was washed away. As of Thursday night, authorities in Boulder hadn't  been able to contact with the Lyons department to make sure the firefighters had been rescued, said Ashlee Herring, a spokeswoman for the city of Boulder.

Opinions

Autumn MiIler and Sophia Lucia both have the same solo song. But who is better? Autumn puts emotion into the dance whereas Sophia has loads of tecnique. I think autumn is better because she is connected with the audience and i find her more entertaining. I got so bored watching Sophia i wanted to rip out my eyeballs. she is a beautiful dancer but she doesn't do anything besides kicks, pirrohuettes, and fuettes.

Others say they like Sophia better beccause she can do cooler stuff but that isnt true. they are equally as good and better at different things. But I liked Autumns Solo better

SAVE THE ANIMALS

Are you looking for a dog? Or cat? or even bunny? Stop at the animal shelter. THey have plenty of loveable animals to choose from. I got my dogs there and they are the best they could ever be. Go before they put the animals down because nobody will adopt them. Or at least donate to save them.

Last night Giants Won against Dodgers 6-4. SF and Dodgers both had 8 hits. Giants had 2 errors ad dodgers had 0. In other news, San Francisco police say a group of Dodgers fans and Giants fans began arguing outside the stadium minutes after the Giants beat the rival Dodgers 6-4 at home. The “verbal disagreement” soon went to to a physical fight involving a knife, and a man in Dodgers hat was stabbed and was traken to a nearby hospital where he was announced dead.
