A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday afternoon for most of Southern Colorado. Daytime heating and moisture will combine with a disturbance moving through Colorado to develop numerous thunderstorms. Any one of them will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain. Burn scars and areas that have seen recent heavy rain will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
Qwest Communications is once again offering long distance phone service within its Western region. Qwest began offering the service again today. The company is featuring 10 cent per minute plans with no monthly fees in eight states.
Qwest acquired U.S. West in 2000 and gave up long distance service in the 14 states where it also offered local phone service.
Regulators approved Qwest's applications last month to again offer long distance in Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
Rate plans announced today are good in all of those states except Montana. Qwest is waiting for state regulators there to approve prices.
