Rescues Continue as Colorado Braces for More Rain

The search for people stranded in the area from the Rocky Mountain foothills to the plains of northeastern Colorado grew more difficult Sunday, with a new wave of rain threatening to hamper airlifts from the flooded areas still out of reach. The number of confirmed flood fatalities stood at four but was expected to rise. Hundreds of people remained unaccounted for, though most are likely just stranded, officials said. President Barack Obama signed a disaster declaration and ordered federal aid for Colorado.  (AP Photo/Earth Vision Trust, Matthew Kennedy)
