One of my best friends in the world lives in Colorado. Thankfully her area was not among the hardest hit. But, she has still had to deal with massive amounts of rain, and she knows plenty of people who have been right in the thick of things. She sent me some images and videos so I could share the story with everyone here in Baltimore.

That's a shot of a pedestrian tunnel filled with water.
Here's an even better view.
That's a main road just filled with water. I don't know the backstory, but judging by the brake lights on the vehicles, I'd imagine it filled up quick.
The three images above are more examples of the damage. Keep in mind, these are from areas there were not among the hardest hit.
This video might not be the clearest thing in the world but it certainly gives you an idea of what the water looks like as it's flowing through the streets.
