Flooding In Colorado Kills Two

This week has bought both extreme highs and extreme low temps for the Midwest and Northeast. But it’s Denver that's pounded with rain overnight, just days after its freakish hail storm. Five overlapping flash flood warnings have been issued overnight, reports CNN's Indra Petersons.

As parts of Colorado received a massive amount of hail blanketing the ground like snow Monday, one resident said, "I thought there was a tornado, lightning was going crazy, it was like a movie."

A young mom and her six-year-old daughter captured cell-phone video as a flashflood almost swept them away

Stephanie Liddick said, "It was the most terrifying moment of my life."

CNN's Ana Cabrera reports two people have died from the flooding.  Officials say they've seen huge debris floats and mudslides coming out of the foot hills as Boulder is right on the edge of the Rocky Mountains.
