    Thank you! Great picture. I'll save that one for my nature pics....now, will those deer be safe?

    I got caught in a rip tide once in the gulf, and just seeing all that water swirling and rolling gives me chills.

    Flooding not over yet! Oh dear....prayers to the people in Colorado.

    Boulder, Colorado (CNN) -- Three more days.

    That's how long it may be before all the rain goes away in Colorado, where flash flooding has cut off towns, ripped out roads and killed at least three people.

    More rain is forecast through Sunday for the region, on top of the 15 inches some parts of the state have already received. While meteorologists aren't sure which way the water will go, state officials warned that "very heavy rainfall" is likely again Friday.

    "This isn't over," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

    President Barack Obama declared an emergency for Boulder, Larimer and El Paso counties, FEMA announced Friday. The declaration adds federal assistance to rescue efforts.

    Nineteen counties remained under high threat of flooding Friday, the state Office of Emergency Management said.

    They include Boulder County, where National Guard troops were evacuating the entire town of Lyons, which had been cut off by flash floods.
