Colorado man dies when trailer collapses in wind

DENVER (AP) — A storm system in Colorado that flooded streets and stranded drivers up and down the Front Range is being blamed for the death of a man on the southeastern plains. The Baca County Sheriff's Office says a trailer in Vilas collapsed in strong winds late Wednesday night, killing 84-year-old Donald Falconburg. The National Weather Service is investigating how strong the winds were. Elsewhere on the plains, 6 inches of rain fell in Eads, an area that's been locked in extreme drought. More rain was falling Wednesday across the eastern half of the state, but it was mostly expected to be light. The rains haven't caused any major problems in the foothills hit hard by last September's flooding. Some rain stood on streets in Lyons, but sandbags protected vulnerable neighborhoods.
