Photos: Colorado National Guard responds to the flood
As of yesterday, according to the Colorado National Guard Facebook page, more than 2,100 people and 500-plus pets had been rescued by the guardsman from the state and U.S. Army troops from Fort Carson -- and the mission is scheduled to continue today thanks to a weather forecast that will allow helicopter flights to aid people still stranded. Look below to see photos from the organization's Flickr stream showing the CNG in action.
