A FLASH FLOOD WATCH will go into effect on Tuesday 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. The 11 Breaking Weather Team will be tracking this threat all day for you.
More Colorado residents and businesses are filing for bankruptcy than ever before.
Filings for the first six months of the year are running 21 percent ahead of 2002.
Experts say a rocky economy and massive layoffs pushed bankruptcy filings to 21,260 last year. There have been 1,294 personal and business bankruptcy filings so far this year.
A recent study shows Colorado with the nation's second-highest percentage increase in bankruptcy filing rates over a two-year period ending in March.
The bankruptcy boom has forced the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Denver to consider adding two trustees to the court 19-member panel.
