Heavy rains in Colorado produced flooding of 'biblical' proportions throughout the state last week. At least 8 people have died and evacuations continue as floodwaters move downstream from the mountains to prairie towns. More than 11,000 people have been displaced from their homes and it may be months before they can return.
More than 17,000 structures were damaged and 1,500 homes destroyed, according to the Colorado Office of Emergency Management.

The powerful twister struck only a day after a tornado killed two people in Shawnee, Okla., and left 39 others injured throughout the state.
