Severe Flooding, Record Heat

Firefighters in New Mexico and Colorado are battling wildfires that have spread quickly in all directions, forcing hundreds of people to flee from their homes across both states.

In Colorado, at least 18 structures, including homes, have been destroyed, while one person is missing and feared dead, according to authorities. Flames have torched more than 30 square miles in two days.

While in Pensacola, FL, a relentless stream of tropical moisture brought significant flash flooding to Pensacola, Florida on Saturday.

Pensacola Regional Airport picked up 13.13 inches of rainfall on Saturday, making it the second wettest day on record next to October 5th, 1934 when 15.29 inches of rain fell.

Meanwhile, the Pensacola Naval Air Station picked up 12.71 inches of rain Saturday.
