The devastating floods along Colorado continue to rage and are causing trouble for residents in several ways.
A flash flood warning is still in effect for Larimer and Weld counties as of Monday along the Platte River.
Rescue teams still have yet to find more than 1,000 people in 15 counties across the state according to USA Today.
The teams do not predict that there are many more dead aside from the five accounted for in Boulder and El Paso County.
Two of the people swept away in the flood were 19-year-old lovers Wesley Quinian and Wiyanna Nelson. Quinian died after jumping in to save Nelson from the rushing water in Boulder according to CBS4.
Residents who are still in their homes face the danger of contaminated water from sewage system leaks. The Denver Post reported on Monday that flood waters damaged pipelines and manholes in Boulder, Greeley, containing the city’s sewage.
Areas have been ordered to conserve water and no-flush orders have been suggested in order to prevent more waste backups.
Portable toilet systems have been set up in several areas to replace the compromised systems in people’s homes.
"It is no doubt an epic event," said Weld county commissioner Sean Conway according to the Denver Post report. "It is a once in 500 years or 1,000 years situation."
