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.
At least 40 people from nine agencies are searching for a missing man today in the rugged terrain around Cataract Lakes near Heeney, located about 75 miles east of Denver.
Summit County Sheriff's spokeswoman Paulette Hoar says 49-year-old Richard Keuhn has been missing since he was seen backpacking around the area on Friday. He was reported missing yesterday after he did not show up for work.
Hoar says 35 to 40 searchers looked for the Denver-area chiropractor yesterday and found his car at the Cataract Lakes trailhead.
Wednesday, dogs and a blackhawk helicopter are helping crews search for Keuhn in a 20 to 25 miles area.
