A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday 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. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
An accident at Powers and Airport in Colorado Springs is blocking traffic and backing up lanes in the area.
Police say five vehicles were involved in the crash and five patients were taken to the hospital. One of the patients has serious injuries.
Police officers with the major accidents unit are on scene investigating what happened.
Avoid the area if possible.
