One dead, several structures destroyed in Colorado flooding

Colorado (CBS NEWS) -

One person has been killed and several homes destroyed by flooding from heavy rains in Boulder County, Colo., authorities said early Thursday.

 Andrew Barth, of the county's Office of Emergency Management, said several structures in mountainous areas have been lost.

 Jamestown and Four Mile Canyon were under mandatory evacuation and residents of Boulder City and areas north of there were being asked to stay in their homes or to seek higher ground, Barth said.

 Students on Colorado University's Boulder campus were told to stay in their dorms due to flooding on campus.

 Creeks were expected to continue to spill over their banks and threaten local homes and roadways as rainfall continued.

 The local dive team was activated but hadn't conducted any rescues as of early Thursday.

 Roads in some parts of the county had up to a foot of standing water on them and were closed, reports CBS Denver station KCNC-TV. The local fire department and sheriff's department helped people stuck on flooded streets.

 The National Weather Service said flash flood warnings were in effect in Boulder County, and KCNC forecasters predicted rain, heavy at times, and isolated storms into the weekend.
