Original post, 5:51.a.m. September 12: At 6 a.m., moments from now, CU-Boulder spokespersons will be holding a press conference about the ongoing flooding in Boulder -- but we already know that the university will be closed today, as will all city offices, thanks to three days of steady rain that left the ground saturated and a huge volume of water with nowhere to go. One death has been reported in Jamestown due to a structure collapse, and we're also hearing about mudslides in the Fourmile Canyon burn area.

Look below to see videos of the scenes that resulted, interspersed with the latest releases from the City of Boulder, CU, the Colorado Department of Transportation and the Boulder Office of Emergency Management.
