The sun rises over a portion of railroad track undermined by flooding days earlier, in Longmont, Colo., Tuesday Sept. 17, 2013. Meanwhile elsewhere, searches continue for those missing in isolated Colorado mountain towns. The rains finally stopped, allowing many Colorado flood evacuees to return home to toppled houses and upended vehicles with the realization that rebuilding their lives will take months. Search crews, meanwhile, rescued hundreds more people stranded by floodwaters. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley)
