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.
The last day of September set a record for filings at the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Denver.
The court set a single-day record for filings with 433 on Friday.
Court officials say the record will probably fall soon. They expect a flurry of filings before stricter bankruptcy rules take effect October 17th.
The new law includes higher filing fees and requires credit counseling and debt education.
About 28,000 bankruptcies have been filed so far this year in Colorado. The total for all of last year was 27,993.
