Update: Structure damage in Jamestown. Urgent evacuation notice for Jamestown is underway. Head for higher ground now.

Now sounding like the entire North Area Tech Rescue Team is being activated, going to Red NW and at least one fatal in Jamestown.

Along with USAR TF-1 has been activated, Numerous rescues on-going all day and sounds like a very confusing comm plan many of the units continue to key up on Red 1 because there assigned tac channel is not working or they "can't find it" on there radios.

Hwy-72 Coal Creek Canyon (and many others) completely washed out and AMR can not access western parts of the Coal Creek Fire Dist so Gilpin County Amb will be covering that area.

Fatal count now up to at least three.

Anyone have possible frequencies to be used by Guard helicopters or USCG helicopters when they begin rescue operations in Boulder?

The nightmare is far from over as the state awaits more rainfall Saturday, threatening to send swollen rivers gushing through streets choked with debris. The rain is expected to come down heavy Sunday.
