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.
It's been a day of sad remembrance for the families of those who died in the crash of American Airlines Flight 587 five years ago Sunday.
265 people died when the plane crashed moments after taking off from New York's Kennedy airport, bound for the Dominican Republic.
Sunday morning, bells tolled and the names of the victims were read.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg was on hand to dedicate a memorial in a beachfront neighborhood of Queens. The curved wall bears the name of all those killed in the nation's second-deadliest air accident.
The memorial wall has windows and a doorway offering views of the ocean. It also bears a quote, in English and Spanish, from the writings of a Dominican poet. It says: "Afterwards I want only peace."
