Body of man killed in Jamestown flooding recovered

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Search crews have recovered the body of a man who was killed when the building he was in collapsed during massive flooding in Jamestown last week.

Boulder County emergency operations spokesman Andrew Barth tells The Daily Camera (http://bit.ly/15DJUQy ) the body was pulled from the debris Tuesday night. The man, whose name has not been released, was killed when floodwaters rushed through the mountain town northwest of Boulder on Thursday morning.

State officials on Wednesday held the number of flood-related deaths at six, plus two women missing and presumed dead. The number is expected to increase, but it could take weeks or even months to search through all the flooded areas.
