Up to 6 Dead; 500 Missing in Colorado As Residents Brace for More Rain

Boulder, Colorado (CNN) — Colorado residents are keeping a wary eye on the sky as more rain is forecast for Sunday.

As dawn broke, officials worried about continued rescue operations.

“We’re going to be in for some steady rain over the next 12 hours,” said Kim Kobel, a spokesperson for Boulder’s Office of Emergency Management.

It shouldn’t total more than 1 to 2 inches though. “So that’s the good news,” Kobel said.

Still, authorities worry that any additional water on ground that’s already soaked by up to 15 inches of rain will cause more flooding and dislodge mud and debris. Also, the omnipresent clouds pose a problem for aerial rescue efforts. “It’s unlikely at this point that we’ll be able to reach those who are stranded in the hard-to-reach areas,” Kobel said.
