LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) — A fifth person is believed to have died in Colorado’s flooding.

A woman is presumed dead after witnesses saw floodwaters from the Big Thompson River destroy her home at the mouth of the Big Thompson Canyon.

Larimer County sheriff’s spokesman John Schulz says the home was in the Cedar Cove area, right above an area called the Narrows.

About 100 people are unaccounted for in the county. Shulz says he expects to continue to receive reports of confirmed missing and confirmed fatalities in the next several days.
