Colorado state news and state government coverage. 

As the remaining flood survivors continue to be airlifted out of towns cut off by flooding, the focus is beginning to shift to recovery. Specifically on the very reason they have to be airlifted: roads.

After rain pummeled flooded communities over the weekend, long awaited sunshine poked through the clouds Monday. Towns are just starting to dry out from days of heavy rain and flooding.

The flooding that has roared through communities and canyons across Colorado's Front Range in recent days is now being blamed for:

-- as many as eight deaths

-- damaging or destroying 19,000 homes

-- causing up to $500 million worth of damage to roads and highways.

State and federal officials say it’s still too early to determine the scope of damages in the wake of Colorado’s devastating floods.

In an effort to deliver up-to-the-minute information resources on how the recovery effort is progressing along the Front Range, how to help and how to find people affected by the flooding, we have created a list of live update links for you.

Aspen Public Radio will be updating this list of links as more resources come on-line. If you find something that we have missed, feel free to list it in the comments section below and we'll add it to the list.

Colorado remains under the spell of water. Steady rains Sunday hampered evacuation and rescue efforts and brought renewed warnings to a flood weary Front Range.

As flooding moves east across Colorado and rains are once again in the forecast, the recovery efforts continue.

For a second day flood waters, goaded by heavy rains, impacted large swaths of the Front Range. When skies finally broke, many were stranded, hundreds were in need of rescue and four lives were lost statewide.

As heavy rains brought wide ranging flood conditions across the state Thursday, the Front Range is bracing for more Friday.

Heavy rains have caused road closures, mudslides, power outages, gas leaks and more across Boulder County and along parts of the Front Range. We're following developments.
