Longtime Lyons, Colo., resident LaVern Johnson, 86, says there's no sewer, water, electricity or gas in town, two weeks after the deadly flooding in Colorado. She says most of the residents have temporarily fled.

Town leaders met last night about how to get the town back on its feet. But LaVern says even though FEMA has been helpful, it will be a long time before the town bounces back.
