The official death toll from flooding triggered by a week of torrential downpours along the eastern slopes of the Rockies in Colorado rose to eight on Monday, according to the state Office of Emergency Management.

The latest count of confirmed fatalities includes two women who Larimer County officials reported missing and presumed dead on Sunday after their homes were washed away by floodwaters that have destroyed an estimated 1,600 dwellings since last week.
