A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect at NOON and last through MIDNIGHT from most of Southern Colorado. Scattered afternoon and evening thunderstorms will be more than capable of producing very heavy rain once again. Burn scars and areas that saw heavy rain yesterday will be under the greatest risk for flash flooding. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
It took workers just a few minutes to tear down the one-room Amish schoolhouse in Pennsylvania where a gunman shot five girls to death last week and wounded five others.
An excavator began removing the porch of the school under the glare of construction lights about 4:45 a.m. Thursday. Heavy equipment knocked down the bell tower and toppled the walls. The debris will be hauled to a landfill.
The Amish hope to bring some closure to the tragedy by demolishing the schoolhouse and leaving in its place a quiet pasture planted with grass.
Classes are resuming this week at a makeshift schoolhouse in a garage on an Amish farm in the Nickel Mines area.
