the bizarre and dangerous weather in the west. Massive pieces of hail actually shutting down parts of colorado. And those flash floods, swamping so many, really, as you see here. Turning streets into rivers, with so much more expected. Ginger zee, here, with the very latest. Ginger, this is a region that just does not need it. Colorado, this has been rough. It's not just one or two hailstones we saw. This is multiple. And at some times, falling right here. Just around denver and colorado springs. Falling and then adding up. One to two feet deep. In colorado, the ground turning white. Up to two feet of hail falling in denver, as severe thunderstorms rocked the rockies. The water just takes my car, rushing up over the hood. And I got to go. Reporter: The hail, golf ball-sized and in some spots, plowable. And in colorado springs. It is really bad. Reporter: Flooding rains, trapping this couple. I don't know if I want to take my luck. Reporter: The rushing water, obscures the highway. And they go for it. I can't see. I can't see. Reporter: More than four inches of rain falling in just over an hour. Racing through neighborhoods. Been relentless for, like, the last hour. Reporter: Too much rain, too fast. A car swallowed, trying to muscle through. And rivers, rumbling over their banks. And I wish I could tell you it's over.
