Unbelievable photos, videos from Manitou Springs, Colo., flood

Floodwaters swept through Manitou Springs, Colo., last night, reportedly killing at least one person, and injuring at least three. Police have blocked several major roads, leaving many El Paso County residents, including Twitchy CEO Michelle Malkin, unable to travel to their homes.

The floods were caused by heavy rains yesterday evening coupled with damage to soil from last summer’s wildfire in Waldo Canyon.

Local news outlets and journalists posted incredible photos and videos of the devastation.
