Days of torrential rains along a 130-mile stretch in the foothills west of Colorado's urban corridor triggered widespread flooding across 19 counties, from mountain towns to farming communities. The flood is blamed for eight deaths - with a ninth person missing and presumed dead. It destroyed an estimated 1,800 homes, toppled oil storage tanks, and caused an about $2 billion in property losses, most of it uninsured.
