DENVER — It’s been four months since record floods tore up roadways and transformed the geography of northeastern Colorado. Since then, the Federal Emergency Management Agency has spent millions helping people affected by the disaster.

Yet an investigation by FOX31 Denver found some neighborhoods are getting a lot less FEMA money than others.

Using data provided by FEMA, we pinpointed which areas received the most help, and which places struggled to get aid.

The incident started near E. 13th Avenue and Moline Street around 3:20 p.m., said Frank Fania of the Aurora Police Department.

The girl told police she was walking home from school and saw a newer model grey or brown Chevy Cruze with tinted windows drive past her several times.

When she was near E. 16th Avenue and Oswego Street, she saw the same car parked on the street.

Commentary: Why I think the Broncos will dominate the Chargers

DENVER — I am fully aware how hot the Chargers are right now.  San Diego has won six of the last seven including a playoff victory on the road at Cincinnati.  Oh yeah, and a dominant win at Denver on Dec. 12.

One month later, when the two meet at Sports Authority Field again, I think the Broncos won’t have many problems against them.

I would call San Diego the “team of destiny” if they were playing any other team.  At New England?  I think they could win that.  Against the Colts or Chiefs?  I would pick the Chargers.

Unfortunately for the Bolts, I believe they are going to run into a buzz saw.

The Broncos are going to dominate this team early like the first meeting in California.  Maybe San Diego will make a run like they did in that first meeting, but I just don’t see Denver losing this game.
