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.
There will be a two-day civil rights conference for elected officials, policy-makers, business leaders, the legal community and advocacy groups next week. The Civil Rights Education Forum is sponsoring the event October 9th and 10th at the Colorado Convention Center.
The conference will deal with protecting civil rights when there's heightened concern for national security. It's called ``The Exercise and Enforcement of Civil Rights Post 9-11.'' Federal, state and local agencies, bar associations and public interest advocates will be represented at the conference.
Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar will speak, as will U-S Attorney John W. Suthers and Polly Baca. Baca is executive director of the Latin American Research and Service Agency.
