It continued to rain in Colorado Sunday, sending more water rushing down already-swollen streams, threatening more homes and business, and making search and rescue efforts difficult. Officials say some rivers could continue to flood until Tuesday.

Four people are confirmed dead and two more are presumed lost after their homes washed away.

Hundreds more were unaccounted for, although that number was expect to drop as telephone service was restored.

Flash flood warnings were in place in all or portions of the following counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield and Denver, reports the Denver Post. All of northeast Colorado remains under a flood warning.

"The situation has deteriorated since early this morning," Andrew Barth, spokesman for Boulder County Emergency Management, told the newspaper. "There's a heavy, heavy fog and rain is coming down hard. Standing water is rising because the ground is saturated."

On Sunday, fog grounded the helicopters that had evacuated about 1,500 people Saturday.
