In this Aug. 12, 2013 photo, volunteer and recent local high school graduate Alex Caffery, center, helps local merchants wash mud off merchandise which was heavily damaged a few days earlier in a flash flood, in Manitou Springs, Colo. Manitou Springs lies downstream of the vast swaths of scorched earth left behind by last year's Waldo Canyon Fire, making the town highly prone to flash flooding. In Colorado, multiple flash floods have struck this summer in or near scars left by last year’s wildfires. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley) less
