In this Aug. 13, 2013 photo, local volunteers work to clear away tons of mud-caked debris deposited in a recent 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)
