LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — Search teams are working their way down the list of those still unaccounted for in Colorado’s devastating flooding.

Teams are using satellite images showing where houses once stood before the disaster as they look for nearly 200 people Thursday.

Meanwhile, authorities have resigned themselves to the fact that some people plan to stay in their cut off communities, even though winter in the foothills isn’t far off.

Larimer County sheriff Justin Smith said he’s still encouraging people to leave but he’s also been impressed with the residents of one area who’ve already started rebuilding their access road.
