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.
Residents of a Colorado Springs neighborhood hope others will learn from their experience.
Thieves have struck 27 homes in the Holland Park area in just the past month. Investigators say burglars are breaking into homes between seven a.m. and eight p.m. The thieves are prying off screens and entering through unlocked or poorly secured windows.
Police are urging residents to secure sliding doors as well. Authorities say Neighborhood Watch programs also work well to help deter crime. If you have any information on these crimes, call Colorado Springs Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.
