    EVANS, Colorado (AP) — Immigrants living in the U.S. illegally returned to their mobile home parks in flood-ravaged Colorado to find that there was little left to salvage — not the water-damaged cars, not the old family pictures and not the sheds carried away by the rushing waters. The destruction, however, was only the beginning of what's been a nightmarish two weeks. They didn't have flood insurance. And because they are not citizens or legal residents — and don't have family members who are — they won't get the federal government's help. "They say that faith and hope die last,"...

    Nebraskans have observed the Colorado flooding with detached concern, but their worries are about to become reality, at least if they live along the South Platte River.

    An entire community cut off, firefighters huddled on the side of a mountain after water swept their truck away, and -- with rescue helicopters grounded -- no way to reach them. This is the scene facing authorities Thursday in Boulder County, Colorado, in the wake of what Sheriff Joe Pelle called a "devastating storm" that dumped more than half a foot of rain on the region during a 19-hour period. The widespread flash flooding washed out roads, pushed dams to their limits and beyond and killed at least three people along Colorado's Rocky Mountain range, from Boulder south to Colorado...
