First fire, then floods in besieged Western forest
In this Aug. 13, 2013 photo, run off from a heavy rainstorm runs through the foundations of debris-strewn homes destroyed in a flash flood, in Manitou Springs, Colo. Manitou Springs lies downstream of the vast swaths of scorched earth left behind by last year's Waldo Canyon Fire, making the town highly prone to flash flooding. In Colorado, multiple flash floods have struck this summer in or near scars left by last year’s wildfires. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
