A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for all of southern Colorado throughout our evening and overnight on Tuesday. Storms will continue to be an issue, capable of producing heavy rain with very slow movement. Storms look to mainly favor north and east of areas like Colorado Springs and the Waldo Canyon area, but storms cannot be ruled out still in this area. The 11 Breaking Weather team will be monitoring conditions closely. This Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through 6pm Wednesday, where another day of thunderstorms is possible. Head to the KKTV 11 Weather Tab for more information on the forecast for Wednesday and beyond.
Some Colorado Springs elementary school students are learning an important lesson about how and when to use 911. The students in District 49 got to practice dialing 911 Friday on a giant remote controlled cell phone.
The kids were also given the opportunity to check our the Penrose Saint Francis flight for life helicopter, and American Medical Response ambulance and a fire truck from Falcon.
The lesson was all part of the observance of national 911 day, which is on September 11th.
