Mudslides Kill One Person In Colorado

Posted: Updated:

Mudslides have killed one person in Colorado. Three more are reported missing.

The man's body was found beneath the debris left by the mudslide on U.S. Highway 24 in Manitou Springs.

According to the National Weather Service, the area West of Colorado Springs is vulnerable to flash floods and mudslides because of the Waldo Canyon Fire from last year. The scorched soil cannot retain as much water as normal.

Heavy rain from yesterday came down and triggered the latest rounds of flash flooding mudslides.
