Colo. Rains Stop, Heartbreaking Search Continues

Ad Feedback

The rains have finally ceased in Colorado, making it easier for crews to continue to search for those still missing following historic flooding in the state.

A week of torrential downpours killed at least eight people and has left hundreds unaccounted for. Rescue crews are still trying to evacuate some victims.

Other flood evacuees are returning and finding their houses in ruins. About 19,000 homes have been damaged or destroyed.

CBN's Operation Blessing is in Boulder, Colo., working with local churches to help victims.

Their crews are also providing much needed clean-up supplies as well as prescriptions, diapers, and baby formula.

Michelle Holmberg, with Young Life, said she is grateful for the help from Operation Blessing.

"It's been so great to have Operation Blessing come to be part of our community," she said. "We just don't have the resources and the wisdom that y'all have."

"You guys have been in so many different situations and disasters and this is our first round so we are so thankful for the wisdom that would come from Operation Blessing and organizations like yours that would bring relief," she added.

Volunteers are also offering emotional and spiritual support through prayer.
