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.
(Washington-AP) -- A key senator has agreed to extend the
deadline for some airports to screen all baggage.
Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ernest Hollings of South
Carolina filed a bill late yesterday to allow up to 40 airports to
take longer than December 31st to meet the requirement.
Denver International Airport Director Bruce Baumgartner says the
airport needs $50 million and more time to ensure all baggage is screened for explosives.
Baumgartner and other airport directors support a measure that would let them miss the deadline for installing explosive detection systems if they come up with specific plans.
It's unclear whether D-I-A would receive more time to comply
with the baggage-screening mandate under Hollings' proposal.
