People walk through a severely flooded neighborhood in Lyons, Colo., on Thursday, Sept. 19, 2013. Residents displaced by last week's flooding in the Colorado canyon town were allowed past National Guard roadblocks Thursday to find a scene of tangled power lines, downed utility poles, mud-caked homes and vehicles, and work crews furiously clearing debris and trying to restore power, water and sewer service.
