Now we turn to the wet weather leading to flooding in so many parts of the country. And more rain expected, again today. Ginger zee is in for sam this morning with a look at that. The colorado springs area hit so hard is also in the zone again? Right, that same town, manitou springs. This is right now. They'll be under watch this afternoon and evening. A huge part of the country slammed last week also under watch. It's this. This spike in a river gauge that quickly shows you how in less than 15 minutes, ten feet of water comes slamming down. This is the most terrifying thing I have ever seen. I can't stop changing. This is god's power. Reporter: One person dead. The search for another is on after furious flash flooding mauled manitou springs, colorado. Oh, my god. Those people. Don't get out. Reporter: Watch the moment as 70-year-old glen dotson decides whether or not to jump. He's got to know he's better off in the car. Reporter: From the car to the black flood waters rushing down the rode. Dotson goes for it. He just fell down. Walls of mud and water came at me. The next thing I knew, cars were flying past me. I had a pickup just barely miss me. It looked like one of them was going to get me for sure. Reporter: Today, he's safe. He says he may not have made it if not for ben tillman, stuck in his own car. He was in shock. Being a medic, I know you talk him down. We're together. You're not getting out of the car until it's time. I'm going to take care of you. Reporter: One man lost his life. 54-year-old john collins. This morning, this mountain town just six miles from colorado springs is caked in up to half a foot of mud.
