  •  I had an aunt and uncle... (4+ / 0-)

    and cousin who died in the '75 Big Thompson flood.  The worst place to be during heavy rains is in a mountain canyon by a river.  Streams can go from 10 ft to 20 in just minutes.  When the soil is saturated the water's got nowhere to go but downhill.
    I live in Lakewood on high ground with no rivers nearby but we have gotten more rain in 1 week than we did all of last year.
