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.
(AP) -- John Parvensky, president of the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, says officials are trying to establish a baseline count to let them see where the help is needed.
Some estimate the current amount of homeless people at 15-thousand. The last survey done in 1988 found that there were three-thousand-637.
Volunteers around the state will spend tonight and tomorrow morning counting, using a 26-question survey focusing on a person's homelessness and services they've used recently.
A second count will be on January 22nd to check the accuracy of the count and to adjust for the number of seasonal resort workers who are back on the job.
