LYONS, Colo. (AP) - Flash flooding in Colorado has left three people dead, and widespread high waters are keeping search and rescue teams from reaching stranded residents and motorists in Boulder and nearby mountain communities.

The flood waters triggered mudslides and have damaged or washed away at least three buildings in the mountains. They've also caused three cars to plunge into rushing water after a road collapsed in suburban Denver.

Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle says two people have died in his county.

Colorado Springs spokeswoman Kim Melchor said police conducting flood patrols also found a body in the water on the west side of that city, in El Paso County.
