Woman found safe after mudslide
MANITOU SPRINGS, Colorado (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Police in Manitou Springs, Colorado say a woman who was reported missing after a deadly mudslide has been found safe.
Monday heavy rains continued to drench parts of Colorado and people feared there could be more mudslides.
Friday's mudslide that killed one person and damaged dozens of homes happened after heavy rain fell on an area burned by a wildfire last year.
Now Governor John Hickenlooper has signed a disaster declaration for Manitou Springs and El Paso County that provides $400,000 for cleanup.
It will also allow the Colorado National Guard to help in any future flooding search and rescues.
