A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect this 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. This FLASH FLOOD WATCH will remain in effect through 6pm Wednesday. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat closely for you the next two days.
The two departments in Colorado Springs will lose one-point-six
million dollars because of the city's budget deficit.
That amounts to more than 40 percent of the almost four (m)
million dollars in cuts being made to close the gap.
But city budget manager Mike Anderson defended the cuts.
Anderson says the cuts account for just one-point-seven percent
of the public safety budget.
He also says other departments took bigger cuts.
