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.
MOUNT HOOD, Ore. (AP) -- A dozen rescuers armed with chain saws and other tools are chipping away at a collapsed ice tunnel in hopes of finding a Colorado snowboarder buried on Oregon's Mount Hood.
The snowboarder was traveling with five companions when the collapse hit Saturday afternoon. Hood River Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Tiffany Peterson said the search resumed early Sunday and would continue until about 1 p.m. -- by which time warming temperatures are expected to increase the risk of avalanche.
Authorities identified the missing man as Collin Backowski, 25, of Pines, Colo. His companions tried to dig him out, but were unable to break through the ice and snow, which Peterson described as being as thick as concrete.
