ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The city of Englewood responded Friday to concerns over the deadly flooding and damage from Tuesday's storms.
Rachael Haber only intended to stay a few minutes when she stopped by the basement apartment of a traveling friend to check on her pet cat in the 4600 block of Acoma Street.
While she was there Tuesday, a small but intense storm hit the area south of Denver, unleashing a torrent of rain that rushed through streets and backyards while flooding basements.
Officials say the 32-year-old Haber got trapped and drowned.
Residents are concerned and critical about what the call faulty storm drains in the neighborhood.
Englewood city leaders issued a lengthy response Friday regarding what happened and the current situation.
The city says it has crews out and about assessing the damage and it admits there is a lot of work to be done. Englewood leaders are looking into state and federal options to get recovery help.
