Boulder County, Colorado, is under water. The Governor declared a disaster area after a powerful storm caused flash flooding Wednesday night, CNN's George Howell reports.

On Friday morning, at least three people had died and one person was missing as residents were urged to stay in their homes as relentless rain could mean more flash flooding.

Governor John Hickenlooper said, "We have declared a disaster for the flooded areas and requesting emergency declaration from FEMA."
