Tragic Love Story in Colorado

A young couple is swept away by the devastating food
Sept. 16, 2013

Persistent rains and devastating floodwaters have ravaged parts of Colorado in recent days. At least four people are dead and two missing. Two of the confirmed victims were 19-year-old Wesley Quinlan and Wiyanna Nelson. After their car was stopped by massive flooding, Wiyanna was swept away by the waters and Wesley jumped into the turbulent waters in an attempt to save her. The parents of the young couple met for the first time to offer each other condolences, as their friends remembered the pair.

Some 1,500 homes have been destroyed and about 17,500 have been damaged in the historic floods, and thousands of stranded residents still await rescue. Sixteen or 17 helicopters will resume searching for trapped residents on Monday, according to officials.

How long is it going to take for some one to realize these flooding's can be tracked and predicted just like any weather pattern There will be another one, give it 2 months and it'll either be extreme snow or flooding just like the last 2 years. If they tracked this and found the pattern because there is one they could warn people. Don't say you can't predict the weather, we have technology that can manipulate it. Nothing new.
