Residents of Jamestown, Colorado are led off a helicopter at Boulder Municipal Airport in Boulder, Colorado in this September 14, 2013 handout photo after being rescued by U.S. soldiers after severe flooding shut down major roads leading out of town. Colorado residents are beginning to assess the damage after torrential downpours unleashed flash flooding that killed five people and forced thousands to flee to higher ground as rising water toppled buildings and stranded motorists.
