Basement flooding in Colorado. The old adage "When it rains, it pours!" was so true on June 6, 2012! Not only did we get rain coming down at about 2" per hour in many areas, we also were pounded by hail that grew to almost baseball size in some areas. This video shows the beginnig of a thunderstorm that settled over our area for about 2 hours and poured out wave after wave of heavy rains and hail.
