Flash flooding in Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs has damaged homes and business as well as quite a few cars on Monday. In some cases, cars were simply swept away by the rushing waters.

Video showing cars being picked up and washed away by the muddy waters were shown by several news stations.

In other areas, hail piled up several inches deep near Colorado Springs.

Some businesses, such as a Colorado Springs autism center, were damaged by the flooding.

Severe thunderstorms also pounded west-central El Paso County, producing hail and winds up to 60 mph.
