More rain coming to Boulder, Colo., mudslides feared
News Track | NewTrack

The area has received 15 inches of rain and authorities are concerned any more could cause mudslides or debris flows, CNN said.

Officials said many of the unaccounted for were probably safe, but did not have telephone service. Pelle told the Boulder Daily Camera searchers assume some of the missing have been stranded but he assumes "there may be further loss of life or injuries."

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper said he had been assured during a telephone conversation with U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx that "the $5 million that was released Friday was just the beginning" of federal assistance to the region.

Boulder County Transportation Director George Gerstle said it will cost about $150 million to fix 100-150 miles of roadway and 20-30 bridges, CNN reported.

"We have lost a great deal of infrastructure," Hickenlooper said Saturday.

A 60-year-old woman whose name was not reported was presumed dead after she was swept away by floodwater that destroyed her home. Larimer County Sheriff's Office Executive Officer Nick Christensen said neighbors had tried to rescue the woman before she was swept away.
