Two people missing after a mudslide in Manitou Springs, Colo., on Friday have been found safe, but a woman seen clinging to a tree is unaccounted for.
MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. — Two of three people reported missing after a fast-moving mudslide swept through Manitou Springs, Colo., have been found safe.
The Gazette reports a man who recently moved to the area affected by the flood was found Saturday. On Sunday, the El Paso County Sheriff's office said another man thought to have disappeared in the flood, 24-year-old Juston Travis, was accounted for.
Authorities are still trying to determine what happened to an unidentified woman witnesses saw clinging to a tree during Friday night's mudslide.
Three missing, 1 dead in Colorado flooding
At least one person was killed in the slide, which also destroyed six houses and damaged more than 30 others in an area burned by the Waldo Canyon Fire last year.
Police Chief Joe Ribeiro says crews continue to sift through creek beds filled with debris.
Friday's torrential rains swept mud, boulders and other debris down U.S. 24, washing away vehicles and damaging several homes and businesses in the area.
"Some folks have lost their homes. There's been some total destruction on a few homes and some significant damage to others," said Ribeiro, who did not have an accurate assessment of the damage.
The Colorado Springs Gazette reported Friday's flash flood was the third to hit Manitou Springs this year and the fourth in the area since the Waldo Canyon Fire, which destroyed 347 homes, killed two people and burned more than 28 square miles.
"We didn't have a lot of warning last night. This really came upon us quickly," Manitou Springs Mayor Mark Snyder said. "And yet I know that businesses, restaurants evacuated their people, got them to safety and that's always the first order of business."
More rain was forecast for the area Saturday afternoon and evening.
