The number of people unaccounted for from Colorado’s devastating flooding has fallen to about 200.

Rescuers continued efforts to reach stranded victims Wednesday, while electricity and phone services were being restored to ravaged areas, allowing residents to contact family, friends or authorities.

The number of flood-related deaths remains at six, with two women missing and presumed dead.

Some of the stranded are refusing to leave their homes. Crews have been showing them photos of the surrounding destruction and warning that they could be cut off from essential services for several weeks.

Urban search-and-rescue teams with dogs and medical supplies have begun picking through homes, vehicles and debris piles for victims and documenting the damage they find.

Meanwhile, the South Platte River crested and surged Wednesday through the towns and farms of the Colorado plains and into Nebraska.
