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.
Two men who died on a commercial rafting trip on the upper Animas River have been identified as a guide from Durango and a tourist from Texas.
La Plata County director of emergency preparedness Butch Knowlton says Darrel Bogenrief of Durango was about 25 years old and Scott Licona of Lumberton, Texas, was 30.
Durango-based Mild to Wild Rafting says the men were part of a four-raft trip with the company on Friday when one raft rolled in the expert-level current of the Ten Mile Rapids.
Witnesses say the men were in the water for some time before other rafters reached them.
Autopsies are planned for Monday.
Bogenrief had been a guide with Mild to Wild Rafting for at least five years.
