    The rains have eased in Colorado and a fleet of Chinook helicopters have resumed the rescue operation fanning out across the state where eight people have lost their lives after a week of torrential rain.

    At least 1,600 homes have been destroyed in the floods - the worst in the region for forty years. Over 12,000 people have already been evacuated.
