With a combo of windy, dry and warm conditions for our Wednesday afternoon, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for all counties along and east of the I-25 corridor between 12pm and 7pm this afternoon. PLEASE no outside burning, and if you see smoke, report it as soon as possible! Head over to the Weather tab for more information on the rest of the week.
Incident commander Joe Ribeiro confirmed Saturday that homes were destroyed during the flooding in Manitou Springs on Friday. He says others sustained significant damage.
There is no word yet on how many homes and business are affected. Crews are still doing damage assessment and say they hope to have more information at another news conference this afternoon or evening. The time of that conference has not been announced.
Volunteers are showing up en mass to help with the cleanup downtown.
