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.
Britain's defense minister says it appears the hostage situation in Algeria has come to an end and resulted in further loss of life.
Philip Hammond calls the loss of life appalling and unacceptable. He says "it is the terrorists that bear the sole responsibility for it."
Hammond spoke at the start of a news conference with U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.
According to the state news agency in Algeria, special forces stormed a natural gas complex in the Sahara desert on Saturday in a "final assault" aimed at ending the four-day-old hostage crisis. The report didn't say whether any hostages or militants remained alive, and it didn't give the nationalities of the dead.
Panetta says much remains "sketchy" but "we know that lives have been lost."
